Christmas Kickstart Challenge #42 - Use a Christmas Embossing Folder and a Stamp

Hi, welcome to Christmas Kickstart. There's double the fun on offer for this challenge as we join forces with Let's Squash It! That's right, because there's only one thing better than ONE Embossing Folder challenge: TWO embossing folder challenges!

The lovely Gail is our elf for this challenge and it just so happens that we've recently partnered up to start a new challenge blog  called Let's Squash It! where we celebrate the embossing folder in all it's craftin' glory! If you're not familiar with our new venture you can take a look here.

Our theme for Challenge #42 is:
Use a Christmas Embossing Folder and a Stamp

Here's what Gail made:

This challenge will run here until Monday 23rd November, but will continue until the end of the month over at Let's Squash It! There will be winners and prizes on both blogs, so please sign up to the linky on both blogs to double your chances of winning! The rules are slightly different on each blog so please don't forget to check them before you sign up.

As always we have the wonderful Rudolph with a Random Raffle prize and I think you'll love what he has on offer for this challenge:

  1. Fun challenge Jo and Gail, plus fab to connect to Let's Squash it too!! Just love your inspiration cards!!

  2. Oh no--I missed the last challenge & it was one of my favorite themes! However, this one is great & 2 for 1 is always good! Love the inspiration from both of you! I do have plenty of options to use, so see--it's good to have tons of stuff--haha!

  3. I'm back with a question. Does a pine branch embossing folder count as Christmas? Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Jo. Added my card. The embossing folder is used on the white rectangle behind the cup, so hard to see in the photo.

  4. Sorry I forgot to link to this one - thanks for the reminder. Some great inspiration

  5. Great 2-for-1 prompt and fun inspiration cards. What's more, I have 2 cards in the works that are perfect for these 2 challenges. Love when that happens!
