Count Down To Christmas

After a break from the Thanksgiving holiday, The Cuttlebug Spot is back up and running with it's weekly challenges. This week, we are to use our favorite embossing technique on a Christmas card. I made an easel card and added a hidden pocket to store the interchangable numbers. For the embossing, I ran my Spellbinders dies through the Cutttlebug with the tan embossing mat, then inked them up. There is also other embossing techniques, however, you just can't see them in the photos....I know....it's my story...lol!

This is such a marvelous idea! I love Advent calendars that count down the days (although they are going way too fast!) and this is just a wonderful way to do that. Thanks for the inspiration!
