Duck, Duck, No... Moose!

Last Wednesday I made my weekly video on FB (and uploaded to YouTube) of embossing white core card stock or Core'Dinations card stocks.  While I was prepping and playing with different card stocks I embossed a kinda dark blue with white core paper using Sizzix's Snowfall/Speckles folder and I had a ah ha moment!  I was off and running! I LOVE it when this happens!

At the end of my video last week I showed this card but didn't give any details, until now. This technique requires a sanding block or a fine fingernail file/cuticle board but don't file hard.

How do you like my ah ha card?  Isn't this just so cool?  The moose and trees are a Sizzix die set called Merry Moose but I have yet to use it for a Christmas card.  Maybe this will become one. It's hard to tell but I sponged a bit of Hazelnut Blend ink around the moose's antlers.

The blue embossed snow was sanded to bring out the white core. I used Frosted Lace Stickles to represent snow on the trees.

I added White Opal Liquid Pearls and 2 different colors of Stickles, Crystal and Frosted Lace, to the ground for snow.

I have to say I love this card!!! I still have a bit of the white core blue paper so I might make another (or 2) next winter.  I taught this type of card back in 2010 at the AZ Scrapbooking Store in Green Valley, AZ.
