Bonne chance

A friend of mine has just bought a property in France and they are moving in beginning of 2013 and there will be New Years celebrations. Two embossed birds with one heat gun I say as the challenge this month is Celebration/New Year.

The Eiffel Tower is a cutting file by Jennifer Wambach and rather than using ink on these intricate shapes,  I utilized my discovery from last month and sprayed the whole shape with re-positionable adhesive (Krylon).
It means I can glue the shape together first and then emboss. Super easy and fast! I used metallic Platinum Sparkle to cover the tower. It is so sparkly that it is hard to get a good picture of it without glare. Which is a very good thing!

The box underneath the Eiffel Tower is covered in French dictionary papers and some more Platinum embossing and washi tape. It will hold an album with French phrases.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a very happy start to 2013 or as we say in Germany

'Einen guten Rutsch!'

  3. I love this... It looks big too- what did you cut it on?

  5. The Eiffel Tower was cut on my Cameo Silhouette and is about 20cm /8" high.
