Gold Embossed Christmas

A little gold embossing ... one more card for Christmas.   (I will buy many of my cards this year and not worry a bit about it.  I'm not letting this hobby add stress to the holidays.)

Using a panel helps with the slight warp caused by the heat of the embossing gun.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Stamping is Good


Stamps:  WPlus9 Holiday Greetings
Paper:  Neenah Solar White
Ink:  Versmark, Colorbox Fireberry Archival Dye (this ink stains clear stamps)
Other:  Gold embossing powder, Faber Castell Big Brush red marker and SU green marker

Joan, this is lovely! Great idea about layering a panel. I'll have to remember that one.

Love this card. You're smart to be "ready" for this holiday...often the most stressful one. Susan at Simplicity had a thoughtful post about just this and I am taking it to heart.

Great card. I love the simplicity of the layer with intricacy of the embossing.
