Freebie embossing folders

As the title says the main elements of the card are two embossing folders that were free with magazines. At least I'll use these more than once, not like all the free paper pads and small stamps that were just about the only freebies they used to give away.  I'm sharing this card with the following challenges

Crafty Sentiment Designs  things that start with G, I've used Glamour Dust glitter and a glitter ribon

ABC Christmas  U for uncoloured

Less is More #193  one layer and use two of something

Sister Act #78  anything goes

Outlawz Monday challenge  embossing

The two embossing folders I have used are the snowflake folder in Crafter's Companion Christmas Inspiration pack and the wording one is from Simply Cards and Paper Craft..  As neither of them completely fill the card I have used glitter ribbon to fill in the gaps.  I added Glamour Dust after using a Quickie Glue Pen to the snowflake only 


  1. Quite a different take on the challenge but it's great !!

  2. Beautiful, crisp and gorgeous Margaret
    Almost made me look out the window to check a layer of snow hadn't fallen.

  5. I love purple. It's my fav color! The snowflake embossing folder is awesome...wish I had seen that magazine give away. Definitely worth it! I love the glitter on this card, too. This is the type of card that everyone would like to receive. It's awesome. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Sentiments this week in our "G is for..." challenge! Hugs, Gail
