Merry Christmas - Just Us Girls Challenge

Ahhh.  Today is proving to be much more relaxing than yesterday.  Why do I push myself to get so much done in ONE day?  Anyway.  After addressing all of those cards yesterday, I realized I needed 2 more Christmas cards.  I created this one last night, but couldn't photograph until today.

If you receive my blog post through email, click HERE to read directly on my blog.

This one is also going into the Just Us Girls Challenge #166 - Technique challenge, embossing
I still had my heat tool on my craft table, so I chose heat embossing again.'s so much fun to watch that embossing powder melt into shiny-ness.  Really.

I embossed the leaf images and the sentiment in gold embossing powder.  Then I used my Wild Wasabi marker to color all of those tiny open areas within the leaves.  This is one of those techniques that I forget to use often, even though I enjoy it.  Very easy card to make and to mail.
Thank you for taking a few moments to stop and look.  I hope you're enjoying your Sunday.


Card stock: white (PTI)
Ink: wild wasabi (SU), versamark
Stamps: harvest berries (PTI), greetings of the season (SU)
