it's simply EMBOSSALICIOUS! i'm making holiday stuff!

evenin', crafty friends!  hope the weekend has treated you well!  i spent mine working and doing a charity walk, so i'm rather exhaustified, but wanted to share a little something with you before i call it a night...

i tend to collect embossing folders, and then conveniently forget i have them.  i don't show my folders NEARLY enough love.  i also collect cardstock.  all colors, textures, sizes.  i have so many pretty things, but my ADHD brain thinks about them for about 6.3 seconds before obsessing over something else!

today, i made another holiday card (that's a big head start for me!), and i used the 6x6 Die'sire Embossalicious "Christmas Ornament" folder:

papers, alphasand teeny gems are from my stash and i went simple with the layout - i wanted the ornament to take center stage.  i rubbed some StazOn in Olive Green over the raised parts, added some yellow Stickles, and loved how the ornament was blingy but still kind of subtle.  check it out up close:

i actually think the stickles are STILL wet!  it's been hours!  but i love the shimmer and the bits of glitter in the actual cardstock.  also not my typical holiday color combo!  i shall be getting lots of use out of this folder and i already have a few other projects planned!  check out the rest of the Christmas goodies by CLICKING HERE and i'll be sharing a ton of holiday projects over the next few weeks!

oh, and we've got some exciting things up our sleeves at Crafter's Companion!  if you are one of our newsletter subscribers, you'll have caught wind of this yesterday, but if not, i'm sure the buzz will be coming your way soon!  :)
