No stamping on this card, I’m afraid. Just a lot of “fussy gluing” with those skinny snowflakes and tiny letters! The Naturals Ivory snowflakes against the Naturals Ivory background create an embossed look, which is why this technique is called faux embossing.

I couldn’t resist participating in Beate’s last weekend sketch challenge of the year (WSC109)! Here’s to many more fabulous sketches in 2010!

Thanks for stopping by!
