The interesting mishap occurred because of the extended length of the new embossing folders. What a nuisance it is that they are slightly too long to fit comfortably through the Big Shot sideways! Not to be deterred, I decided to cut about 1/4" from the bottom of the fancy scallop edge embossing folder. There was no other choice since the card I designed was oversized and wouldn't fit into the Big Shot any other way. Even with the 1/4" reduction, it was touch and go to get the card through the Big Shot. One went through slightly a-kilter and the resulting embossing was a sight to see.
Luckily there was time and material for a do-over and that one went through the Big Shot properly.
This piece is from one of my favourite of the Christmas WOW cards. It requires quite a number of techniques, including masking and heat embossing, but the finished card really is gorgeous.
I love the old-fashioned sepia tones in the card. There is just enough understated glitter on the branches of the tree and the snow on the roof of the lodge to catch the light. I'm so glad that everone loved it!
