House of Cards January Challenge: Embossing or Color


Happy New Year's everyone! Welcome to 2016!! What is the best way to welcome in the new year? A great new challenge at House of Cards! This is the 4th year for HOC!! Woohoo!!

Mynn was the first person to ask me to be part of DT and I am still grateful for her belief in me. It has given me the confidence to apply to other teams, but my heart will always be with HOC!


This month's challenge is either embossing or color. I chose to do both- always an overachiever!


I embossed a snowflake folder (unknown) and then I used my copic markers to gently color each snow flake. The saying is from Reverse Confetti along with the snow die from this set.


Be sure to check out what the other DT members came up with and join in the fun at House of Cards this month!

Happy new year Sue. Wow great use of the snowflake embossingfolder... Never thought of using my alchol markers on the erased parts like this. Will keep that in mind.
