Sleigh Bells Ring


Laurie Schmidlin from PapertreyInk has the spotlight this week with her MIM 
tutorial: creating layers on our cards.
Loved it from start to finish. Gave me the nod to create all the lovely layers I want!

Beginning with an Ocean Tides and Pinefeather color scheme, I cased Michelle Phillips'
card using Mix & Mat Plaid, where she edge embossed the corners, as though kissed by snow.
Stampendous Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel has flecks of white, gold and aqua.


The Dash Away All stamp and die set haven't left my table since they arrived. 
I love how the deer seems to take flight no matter where I use him!
Peaceful Pinecones and a big red bow with lots of foam,  just as Laurie instructed,
gives the card my Love of Layers.

See Laurie's video on Nichole's blog here:


Happy crafting!
