Christmas Card Challenge #38 - Embossing

Hi everyone!  Time for another Christmas Card Challenge.  This week the challenge is to use embossing on your card...wet or dry. In the current Make It Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink, Laura Bassen did a technique on creating backgrounds with embossing paste. I loved the technique and created mine with the Twist cover plate to create the background along with embossing paste colored with various inks.  I die cut the cover plate twice and adhered them together to make the "stencil" sturdier.  Then I added the colored paste.  Laura used this PTI scribbles die in vellum behind her die cut word and I realized I had this die!  Forgot all about it, but I think it looks fabulous behind the word.  I die cut the word three times and adhered them together.  I then covered it with Wink of Stella shimmer and Glossy Accents.  The crystal snowflakes were another find and I added them as well.  Love the way this came out!
You can see more inspiration on the Christmas Card Challenge blog.

That die does look fab in vellum and I thought the word die was enamel!! It looks stunning. I just got my first wink of Stella pen, still unused, I sure hope I can make it work magic like you have xx

Love the background pattern, colours and design. The "Joy" surrounded by silver snowflakes finishes it off beautifully.
