FSS - Emma The Hugger

I've been so busy with an upcoming Christmas Card Workshop that I totally forgot to post this card this morning. 

This is my week to host the Fred She Said blog for the Digi of the week special. I chose Emma the Hugger. The Digi image or the pre-colored sheets are all on sale at 30% off until Monday Midnight, Novemebr 22nd. You really need to check out the incredible discounted price on this.
Which ever you choose, it's such an adorable image. It's hard to see in the pictures of the many layers on the image by using the decopage All Sorts Challenge Blog.sheet.

The design for this card came from a fabulous sketch challenge over at
I added Chunky Diamond Dust to the snowman and liquid applique, heated and then added Fine glitter for snow. The backgrounds were done using two different embossing folders. I lightly sanded the embossed snowflakes to make them pop.

I used an extra row of my Hand Stitching to make the stitches resemble snowflakes.

Other Challenge Blogs this card was made for:
Anything Goes - Emboss it!
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Christmas
Delightful Challenges - Glitter It Up!
