The “thanks” sentiment and the silver icicles are die cuts, and the embossing folder is Sizzix, but not one exclusive to Stampin’ Up.
To replicate the fir trees, I punched the cardboard layer included in Designer Series Paper Packs with the Petite Penants Builder Punch, cutting 9 triangles. I “snailed” 3 triangle shapes layering 2, 3 and 4 triangles and used a bit of snail to glue them to a Big Shot plate as shown here. I placed a crumb cake layer over the “trees” and rolled it through. My own exclusive embossing plate!!! after spritzing with log cabin and gold smooch and snipping silver glimmer paper and into a strip of icicles, I ended up with this:
Another try at embossing:
This looks better! Check back tomorrow for the final product!
Until then…Keep Calm and Find Yourself a Rubber Stamp!
