Lots To Do is looking for embossing on cards: heat embossing, embossing using a Cuttlebug or traditional embossing with a light box.
I tried a light box a while ago but somehow couldn't make it work. I then had one of those Fiskars templates where you use a tool to score round the shapes, but it's very hard on the hands!
Then I discovered the joys of the Cuttlebug. For the snowman card I used two folders and also heat embossed using the latest free stamp from Craft Stamper.
The reindeer card uses a stamp by Woodware and I glued on bits of silver "leaf" and made the reindeer sparkle with Stickles. In the background I embossed with the Cuttlebug Christmas ornaments folder.
