Well Winter is making it’s presence felt is it not?  The last few days have been super chilly here and the cooler temperatures are not doing my knees any good hence why I know its only 26 days till I jet out for Salt Lake City compliments of Stampin’ Up! – but I’m not counting!  I am, however, really looking forward to some warmer weather!  Mind you in 28 days I may be whining about how hot it is there!

This is the third card from my Latte Stamp  A Stack the other week and its a case of a card done by fellow demonstrator Jan McAnulty.  It is this week’s Thursday Time Out.

I love this card and although it has many elements it is still quite easy to do.  Making this card showed the girls a few different ways to use their Embossing Folders and Framelits.  As you can see we only partially embossing the Primrose layer and used the Framelit to create a decorative tag – looks a bit like an Indian Temple doesnt it? Easy to do when you know how and I’d love to show you – I might even take the splurge and make a video for you!  Now I did say ‘might’!

Now when I was editing the above photo I thought the card looked a little plain so here are a couple of ways to ‘step it up’ if you’d like to.

Firstly, let’s add a few more pearls ….
