Christmas Gifts

My Christmas cards are all finished and in the mail, so I've moved on to a few last minute gifts.  I shared the name cards and embossed tin I made for a friend of mine in an earlier post.  Today I'm sharing an embossed picture frame that I made for a gift exchanges for a couple of Christmas Parties I am going to (apologies to the demonstrators in Alison's downline as this will be a sneak peek for our gift exchange on the 17th).


Embossing a metal tin or a metal picture frame is really very easy and is so beautiful in the end.  For this picture frame I used the Snowflake Soiree stampset stamping with Versamark and then Gold Embossing Powder and Pewter Embossing Powder.

A couple of tips:
  • Make sure your frame or tin is clean and using the Embossing Buddy to remove any static - this makes sure that the embossing powder won't stick where you don't want it to.
  • Do one colour embossing powder at a time.  I embossed with gold first and heated with my heat gun.  Once it cooled, I rubbed again with the Embossing Buddy and then stamped and embossed the Pewter image.
So easy and such a beautiful gift!
Happy stamping...
