Embossed Crystal

Shew, finally warm enough to go to my basement and stamp! I've spent the last few days in front of the fire coloring.

This was created for multiple challenges:

* High Hopes challenge # 13 to use dry embossing
* Sketch from SFYTT
* My ongoing Christmas Card Challenge

This card represents one of my favorite ways to use dry embossing. I like to emboss just the upper portion of the scene with snowflakes and then run a sponge with Whisper White ink over the embossing to make it "pop". Remember, I cut that center panel out first and then put it back into place when I embossed so that my embossing would all line up.

Don't forget to check out the Daily Dare if you are looking for some challenges!

Stamps: High Hopes Crystal Snow Lady, Merry & Bright
Paper: Real Red, Baja Blue
Ink: Whisper White,
Accessories: Copics, Prismacolor pencils and goo gone, glitter pen, word window punch, scallop circle punch

Wow! I LOVE your coloring!!! This card is so adorable! I really want to try your method of "popping out a layer" from your scene...I'm still working up the courage...
I can't believe how cold it is!!! Lucky for me, my stamp room is the warmest in the house (probably because it's the smallest) STAY WARM! :)
