Silver Bells

Hi there and happy friday! This week in my craft room I have been playing around with embossing paste which is a new product for me and I love the cool effects that you can make. On my card today I embossed the background using the paste and a stencil that I made just with a die and cardstock - it was all so easy and fun and it gives such a lovely texture too.

Thanks for your visit & happy crafting xx
