Heat Embossed CAS Christmas Card


Another Christmas card! I went for CAS this time, inspired by the colors of this week's 52CCT challenge!

I've used a white card base. Before I placed the the brown paper onto gold mirror carton, I heat embossed the edges with golden glitter.

The pine branches how been cut out using a die from Cheery Lynn, and they have been decorated with brown pearls.

The sentiment is a stamp from Panduro, it has been heat embossed in gold and decorated with brown and cream colored pearls.

This card is for these challenges:
1) 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Green, brown, cream, metallic gold
2) Clearly Inspired - Sentimental
3) Paper Crafting Journey - Add some bling
4) Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
5) Sugar Creek Hollow - #33 Sparkle

What a great idea to gold emboss the edges of the card. It really ties that sentiment together!

I have lots of embossing powders...hanging head here...I don't use them very often...I am not sure exactly how to use them.
Think it is time I just remember everything I see on the web and sit and play with them!
Great card!
