Embossing....Midway challenge #78 Digistamps4Joy

Happy Wednesday blogging friends.
Time is sure marching on, not much of October left either, and we are again half way through the current challenge at Digistmps4Joy. This week we are challenged to do embossing on our cards, either wet or dry...with embossing powder or a folder, whichever you prefer. I actually used both of these techniques on my card.

Image...Misteri - Santa's Secret, and you can find it HERE.
Coloured with Distress inkpads, added flower soft on the hat and dress. Did some paper piecing for the present. Raised the image with silicone..

Background used an embossing folder and coloured the embossing with Pan Pastels, added some Pontura pearl maker for the berries, with glittery stars.

Sentiment...Just Rite stamp and embossed with gold cut out with a bauble die.

Yay! another Christmas card made, not getting anywhere very fast with these.

Will be entering some challenges later.
