Lawnscaping challenge #17- embossing....

Hello there!, Today i want to share with you all the  lawnscaping challenge #17 embossing.

I needed to create an embossed card, now it can be dry or heat embossing ,so i decided to do both!

first i needed to create my own embossing folder. i stamped 2 of the lawn fawn snowman's from the new set called making frosty friends on to some box board.
Then i cut them out and stuck the cut outs where the holes were but on the other card at the back. creating my folder.

And there is my embossing folder.

I then embossed my card with the snowman and popped on their faces. added arms and buttons. I masked some trees from lawn fawns critters in the forest and coloured in.
To create the sky i heat embossed with white embossing powder snowflakes from lawn fawns making frosty friends,and critters in the snow. Then i used distress inks to blend a fading night sky.
lastly ii coloured and cut out the snowmans hat and scarf, added some texture by putting colourless blender on to some knitted wool and pressed on the copic colours i had coloured in with. added the bunny and robin then dry embossed with my cuttlebug the "snow" with dots ripped it and layered to make the snow at the bottom of the card. added some distress stickles in picket fence on the trees and snow and done!
Here is the card.

and here is a close up of the embossed snowman with my home made embossing folder

I hope you like it and even give making your own embossing folders a go!
