Emboss It At Sassy Cheryls

This week on the Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog, Sassy Peggy is the hostess. She set a challenge of using embossing in your creation. Also for the remainder of November, all challenge entries will be looked at for the opportunity of some crafter to be chosen as a Guest Designer. Now how wonderful would that be?

For my card I used one of then new Sally images from the Sassy Cheryls store called Sally and Her Bluebird. You'll notice my bluebirds turned into redbirds. I love redbirds and snow. Sally and her friends are colored with Copics.

The background papers are digital papers from a kit called Winter by Shery K Designs. The large snowflake was a free SVG file from SVGCuts, and I cut it on my Black Cat Cougar using my MTC software. I love this machine. The sentiment is actually a Christmas ornament for a miniature Christmas tree that I purchased on sale at Hobby Lobby.  Both the large snowflake and the banner behind the image are embossed with the Cuttlebug embossing folder.


  1. Very cute design, Shirley. Fun color combo with this Sally image.

  2. Shirley! this is fantastic! I love all of these colors together.. and the little red birds!

  5. Really cute Christmas card. I love the icy blue with the snowflakes.
    Thanks for your comment re: the cinnamon swirls.
    Silly me forgot to add the recipe (such as it is!) but it's there now, so if you can find a substitute for the 'jus-rol' you can try them out for yourself. :-)

  8. That is one great snowflake. Don't you love it when you repurpose like you did with the sentiment. Makes you feel thrifty, like now you can go out and buy something else. :)
