Whew! I’m just about finished making all my Christmas cards. Now, I need to catch up with sharing them with you! lol
I hope you’ve made great progress with your cards. If you need to batch several cards to catch up and get them out in time, believe it or not, this was relatively quick to create and can easily be batched. While it is a clean and simple (CAS) card, it really pops with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing folder and dies. I gotta tell you, I am really falling in love with these hybrid embossing folders / dies – they have such awesome dimension making them POP!
With the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder and dies, you can easily create unique and festive frames that POP!!! The dies fit around the embossed image in the folder, allowing you to emboss and cut with one run through the machine. Or choose to use the folder and the dies separately; the choice is yours!
Now let’s take a look at the project details.
