Still not traditional


Here is a CAS card featuring a quick and easy technique -- embossing folder stamping. Just ink the raised side of an EF, spritz with water, insert card stock, and rub your hand over it to transfer the image. Basically, you turn the EF into a big old stamp.
I added a gold-embossed sentiment right over a spot where the ink got a little smeary, and added a snow-flake sequin for a little sparkle. (The gold EP is sparkly, and so is the metallic gold layer, so this card has a nice degree of sparkle).

This card is for these challenges:
Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge -- favorite  technique featured this year
ABC Christmas - Z is for zoom (it's a fast technique)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- ice inspiration
Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos #4 -- CAS with no patterned paper
Word Art Wednesday #260 -- anything goes
Kraftin Kimmie  Wonderful Wednesday -- anything goes

  1. I knew I recognized that snowflake but didn't know from where... now I know! I have that folder. Using it as a stamp is a neat idea.
