Sunday Christmas Card Challenge #38

Dry embossing, wet embossing.  That's the optional challenge for this week's Sunday Christmas Card Challenge.  I opted to do both.  I embossed the Whisper White using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  For the image, I heat embossed the cardinal using Pewter Embossing Powder.  Wet embossing and heat embossing are different terms for the same technique.  The photo does not do this card justice!  The natural light did not show the card off to advantage.  I miss my light tent!  I keep forgetting to add the bulb to my shopping list. 

Stamp Set:  Beauty of the Season; Inks:  Blackberry Bliss, VersaMark Watermark Pad, E39 Copic Sketch Marker; Card Stock:  Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Decorative Label Punch, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Pewter Embossing Powder, Pistachio Pudding Thick Baker's Twine, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Dimensionals
All Stampin' Up!® Product unless otherwise noted.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. The silver embossing is striking against the Blackberry Bliss, Marsha. Love the subtle touch of the embossing folder showing up on the white.

    1. Thanks, Heidi. I love that Blackberry Bliss and cardinals are my favorite bird.
