A Merry Christmas

Well, I've not been keeping up on my weekly Christmas card making and I must say, that has got to change!  I'll never have all the cards I need if I don't get with it.  Of course, come June, I'll have to be on the ball.  That's when I start contributing to Sunday Christmas Card Challenges as a Design Team Member.  I'm still so excited about that!

Last week's challenge was to do some embossing, whether it be wet or dry.  I opted to go dry and dug out my Tim Holtz Snow Flurries Embossing Folder.  A little Old Olive, a little Real Red, a streak of Gold Foil, a button and some linen thread all came together to make this Christmas card.  Since it seemed to be rather stark, I used some Vintage Photo to sponge around the edges of everything but the gold.  The gold looks a bit dull in the photo but it really does shine on the card itself.

To play along weekly with the Sunday Christmas Card Challenges, click HERE.  Of course, a new challenge goes up today but I just had to share this one.  Hmm?  Maybe I'll post a second one later today using today's challenge.  Stay tuned!
