Simon Says Stamp and Paper Crafting Journey Challenges


Embossing is the challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week and Paper Crafting Journey wants us to use a sentiment on our card. This is my favorite of the Christmas cards I have made so far and it is because of the beautiful embossing and sentiment. The sentiment is from a new set I recently purchased from Close to my Heart. The whole front of the white card was embossed and die cut together with a folder by Marianne's Designs. Then I layered white poinsettias that I cut and embossed with Nestabilities and some white pine needles cut with a Martha Stewart punch. I put a shiny red piece behind the cut outs to complete the card.
