Christmas Eve - FOSTV52

Hello and Happy Christmas to all of you and your families.

Today we have another FOSTV challenge and if you find a few spare minutes over the festive period then we would love you to play along.  Our challenge is to make a card or project that shows the Cracked Glass technique - you can find a tutorial here.

I should have used less embossing powder on my first card, which I have described as Broken Ice.  I first used some sparkly powder and then 3 layers of UTEE which is too much so it cracked a lot, had to be re-heated but still cracked too much!  The stamp set I have used for the image is called Ice and Snow - this is also the set one person will win as part of this challenge.

My second card uses one layer of UTEE and then some fine embossing powder - two or three layers.  I prefer this one and the vintage look it has.

Thanks for checking in today and enjoy some family time over Christmas.  God bless.



  1. Janine, I actually like BOTH! I think the extra "broken ice" looks perfect with this wintery card! I also love the vintage look you achieved with the rose and the punched border is lovely!

  2. Lovely cards..I think both are great examples. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  3. oh I like them both, but the 1st cracked ice is way that idea of the cracked picture...

  4. Cracked glass, cracked ice...I like them both. I thinkyour image is easier to see and beautifully colored in your second card!


I love to hear your thoughts - please come back soon.
