Christmas in June

The challenge this week at Mo's Digital Challenge is to incorporate dry embossing on your card.  What a great excuse to create another Christmas card, which means I now have a total of four ready to go.  At this rate, I might have all of my cards ready by say, 2012.  I haven't been able to play with a Mo image for a while because of the trip west so I am excited that I have been able to make this card.  Because these cards have to go in an envelope, I have kept the embellishments simple.  I love my friends and family but not enough to pay additional postage to sent a very dimensional card in a box.  It is this or no card at all.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Ann's  - Embossing
Mo's Digital Challenge - Dry Embossing

The image is called Christmas Fairy Holly and can be found at Mo's store.  I have coloured her with Prismacolor pencil crayons.  The papers are from a Provo Craft Christmas Scrap Pack and Bo Bunny Press.  The card stock is Recollections (Michaels).  The sentiment is computer generated.  Other supplies used: Chalk (Mungyo), Lime Green Stickles (Ranger), Card Candy (Craftwork Cards), Peeled Paint Distress Ink (Ranger), Snowflake Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and Ribbon (Kates Paperie).

  4. How sweet this is! I like the touch of glitter on the embossing. Thanks for taking part in Mo's Challenge this week.

  5. Love the card. It has plenty on it to put a smile on anyone's face this Christmas. I love the fact that you make cards that can be mailed without the extra postage. We pay extra for it being square, so what size is this card?
