Triple Embossed Christmas!!!

Although I love Triple Embossing it can sometimes look a bit heavy so here I have combined a small TE'd tile with an acetate fronted card to lighten the look a little.
I used a small square of mountboard and being the meanie that I am I used two layers of clear ultra thick embossing powder before finishing off with a layer of gold Metal Magic.
Once cooled I used a Cropadile to make the holes for the red brads.
The gold card layer is attached behind the acetate and the red card layer and embossed tile to the front.

I've had a proper flopsadopsical day today. Just pottering around cleaning and cooking and trying not to make a noise as DD was in bed. You can always bet though that when I am trying to keep quiet every cat in the neighbourhood congregates on the path outside our house and has the dog wired up and barking so it's been a bit of a battle to keep him away from the front window today.

Not got anything done in the way of cardmaking but I am off up there now that all my housewifely duties are done.

Thanks for dropping by
