Jingle Belles - Another EMBOSS-ible Mission

Recap - the Jingle Belles challenge for this fortnight was to using embossing of any kind.  I've got two kinds of embossing on this card - wet and dry.  The brick panel is an embossing folder that I sponged light gray ink on.  I cut away some of the excess white paper to see the gray card base.

The Wondrous Wreath stamp was stamped in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow and the berries were embossed in gold EP.  

I usually don't ask HWNSNBP for his opinion before I'm done with my cards but this time I did.  I asked whether the "JOY" should go inside the center of the wreath or in the lower right corner and I took his suggestion.  

Now I'm off to see the other embossed beauties at the Jingle Belles blog.  


  1. I love your card and how you created your background and that the berries are embossed gold instead of the usual red - fantastic!!

  2. Trimming the folder has such a great effect ... love the golden accents on the wreath as well ... you always inspire me when you join us at Jingle Belles.

  3. he's RIGHT you know... that's the PERFECT place for the joy! holy wow, what a fabulous card & such a great example of BOTH kinds of embossing! slam dunk, missus!!! :) :) :)

  4. I love the green (and gold) against the grey, and I especially like the way you trimmed away part of the folder.
