Embossed Christmas Card

Sparkles Christmas Challenge this month is Embossing Heat or Dry so this card that I've made using Crafters Companion's embossing folder should be just right. I started with a piece of Sheena's stamping card first embossing it and then with three different shades of blue distress oxides covered the card. I then sprinkled some water over and blotted off before adding some silver gilding wax to the raised area. I added a couple of sprigs of holy die cut using a Tattered Lace die. Finally I added to a piece of silver wrapping paper that I bought in Lidl but was just too nice to use as wrapping paper and added to a white card base. I'm also going to enter this into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge which is anything goes with the option of glitter.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
