Embossing and Christmas

It is time to start working on your holiday cards - I gathered together some challenges and set to work.

Lots of places have an embossing challenge.

Stampendous's September challenge is to use embossing.  

Simon Says Stamp Challenge is also embossing

Shopping our Stash Challenge - embossing

And the weekly sketch from Merry Monday.

The paper grouping is a very old grouping from Cosmo Cricket.  The santa stamp is from Stampendous - stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with Zing brown embossing powder.  I distressed the edges of all the paper.  The sentiment is also from Cosmo Cricket.  The card size is 5 x 7.

Everyone enjoy the remainder of your evening.
