Hi Everyone

Another christmas card from me.  This is another first for me, this time with the emboss resist technique.  I heat embossed a rather large christmas tree stamp from Woodware in white and then inked the paper with a mixture of greens and yellows in distress and stampin up ink.   It wasn't my first attempt at it by the way, but I was more pleased with this one so I added a few little gold stars and also the sentiment from the set was heat embossed in gold and matted it onto some matching green paper.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter 263 - Embossing of any kind
Paper Creator - Christmas
Craftyhazelnut CCExtra - Anything Goes
Penny Black at Allsorts - Add a Sentiment
SSS Weds Challenge - Stamp It

Thank you for visiting, it is really appreciated and I do enjoy reading your comments.

Ha, ha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has to have several attempts at cards sometimes! But you could've fooled me when you said this was your first time trying this! It looks absolutely pro! I adore the way you blended the greens and made the white trees stand out just right. It almost looks mystical and magical and I love the feelings of Christmas it evokes. This is really lovely and I enjoyed seeing it so much! Thanks for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
