Aud Sentiments and CAS-ual Fridays Challenges

The challenge at Aud Sentiments this week is to make a Christmas card with a sentiment and at  CAS-ual Fridays we are to use embossing. If you know me and my style, you know I use embossing on almost all of my cards. If you look closely, you will see I used embossing three times on this card. The background was double embossed with a swirly pattern first and then my favorite embossing folder - Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug. And the white ornament was cut and then embossed with a Nestabilities ornament die. The fun light bulbs and sentiment are from a set I won from Kitchen Sink Stamps. Don't the Christmas lights look real? That comes from a series of stamps and ink colors that is the trademark of Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Hi Karen, Wow I have to try double embossing. That sound interesting. The lights do look real.
There is still a couple of day to enter the Raisin Boat challenge this month. It is a fun and easy sketch. I hope you will join us.
