Festive Crackers with Background Stamps


Once again I've veered away from making a card and this time I've made some festive crackers with non-festive background stamps by Visible Image stamps. You can just about use any stamp for these as long as you emboss with a sparkly or shiny embossing powder.

And to mix it up a bit I've made a short video.
