Snow Birds

Hello,  are you still picking up wrapping paper, washing dishes, rearranging furniture? 

If so, STOP IMMEDIATELY and go to your crafty area, you deserve some "me" time today!!

I am sharing a cute little card that I made to try inking up one of my embossing folders before putting the paper in. I am LOVING this technique!!

Oh, this is nice, I love the sparkle and happy feel of this card! Great image of the birds and how you've colored them and added that little something extra. Love those accents.

Your embossing folder technique is great, I've used it with swirls before but I LOVE love love it with the snowflakes one and the ink you've used.

Thank you for sharing your creativity and project with us at Opus Gluei, I hope that you find yourself over our way again.
