Back to Basics Challenge - Use an embossing folder

Time for another challenge at Back to Basics,  and this fortnight its use an embossing folder.
For this card I used an Apple Blossom THAT all occasion embossing folder,   this is a very useful folder and can be used in so many ways,   I have used it for a christmas card,   I used a blue holographic card,  I used a white card with blue with blue stars for the embossing folder,  I made a spray of blue feathers,  white poinsettia die cut flowers and blue ribbon.  I used blue peel off dots along the middle and finished off with a gold happy christmas.

We would be delighted to see you are there is a the Back to Basics and beyond challenge blog and here is a link to the blog
