Christmas? Already?

I signed up for a Christmas card swap on SCS (close your eyes if you're in the same swap as me!!). I finished these up last night. Very simple card to make, but time consuming because of drying time, then cutting out the layers and the heat embossing.

I used a Technique Junkies technique, Dry Embossed Pearls, for the background piece. I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, the snowflake one. I used SU! stamps for the sentiment and the snowflake, then embossed with Iridescent Ice. The ribbon is from Walmart, just a sheer blue ribbon. Paper is Stardreams Metallic Sapphire and Blanc (both shimmer like crazy).

I have one more set of cards to make for this swap. I'm trying to figure out something as simple as this one because these might be my Christmas cards for this year. I am so not in the Christmas spirit. It's still too early for me. I don't get excited about Christmas until we're done with the turkey on Thanksgiving.

Do you follow the Dry Embossed Pearls technique to the "T"! I can't find the Liquid Gum Arabic. Where do you get this? I love this technique but I can't find the liquid to help me out! kt
