Christmas Thank you for Happy Little Stampers

Please be sure to include the WHAT, WHY and HOW of your favourite technique in your blog post.  Thank you!!

That's kind of like choosing my favorite child which is an impossible task.

So I tried doing a card using a few of my favorite techniques and
this is the best of the lot.

Dry embossing has been one of my very favorite techniques.

I like a lot of white space and texture.

I love my Big Shot and embossing folders!

This is one of my favorite folders.

I also used a punch, which was my favorite technique before I discovered embossing.

Now won't you share your favorite technique with us at 
(Make sure it CAS)
