The Bah! Humbug! challenge for this week is embossing. I'm also entering this in Hazel's challenge #10, which is embossing, too! (And it'll be my first entry for CHNC Challenge Blog.)
I started with a red card base and added kraft paper and pattern paper that were both embossed using the Sizzix holly & berries texture plate (from Kit #5). The sentiment was from the Quickutz Christmas embossing folders kit, edged using Fiskars apron lace border punch. I put narrow white satin ribbon under the open areas of the border and added some pearls. The embossed design of the patterned paper and sentiment, as well as edges of the patterned and kraft paper, was inked with dark green ink to bring out the embossing. It was finished off with white satin ribbon and bow.
As usual, a fun challenge with lots of beautiful designs from the DT to use as inspiration.
Thanks for taking a look.
