Hambo Hoedown - Show off your corners

Well Christmas is almost here and I still have a long list of things to do.  I love the holiday season, there's always so much to do with decorating, shopping, baking, wrapping and crafting and they usually happen in that order.  My paper crafting and card making seems to get the last few minutes of my available time.  I took a few minutes to play in the Hoedown this week, I didn't receive the free digi since I didn't play last week but I have a good collection of Hambo stamps & digis to choose from.  Staying with the winter theme I used one of the stamps from their Winter release called Snowman Sled. The challenge this week is to create a project that shows off our corners. 

I started to cut the corners to show the snowflakes and ended up almost removing the corners to show off the embossed snowflakes.  The background was created using the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink-faded jeans.  I then applied Stampendous Boss Gloss and hologram embossing powder and heated it.  The stamps are from the Stampin' Up set - Thanks snow much and the white swirl was created with the Die-namic die called elegant scrollwork.  The Hambo stamp Snowman Sled was colored with my Copics markers and then dazzling diamonds added to the swirls. Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog.
