Christmas Card Challenges #33 - Emboss Resist


It's another challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and we would like to see you use the Emboss Resist Technique on your card!
Now I will admit that I didn't follow the challenge this week, not because I forgot but because I just couldn't get the technique to work for me. I threw away 4 tries before giving up. But remember that our challenge is optional, we really just want to help you on your quest to be ready with all your Christmas cards! (and that's why I just went ahead and did a card with a different technique :))

Crafters Companion - Ho Ho Ho Christmas
2 Sisters - Christmas in July
Little Red Wagon - Christmas in July
