Frosty Blue & Silver

Its been a long time since I had my heat gun and embossing powder out but I though it would be a good way to add a bit of silver embossing to my card for this weeks Susie & Vikki‘s Christmas Club where this weeks theme is "Blue & Silver" I hope you will pop over and join in the fun and get another Christmas card prepped up to ease the pressure in December

glad you got the embossing tool out for air. And even more glad this didn't turn into a glue post. Imagine what damage you could in fact accomplish with a heating gun =)

Love this Susie, I haven't yet used my embossing powders and heat gun, one of those things I bought and went into a cupboard - must get it out and experiment. Love silver and blue together, they work so well. Hugs, Claire x
