Double Embossing Challenge at 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown

I'm at it again!  I'm doing another challenge while making Christmas cards!  I find it fun to do this and I know I'll have enough cards when Christmas comes.  This week the challenge requires using both types of embossing - heat and dry!

I used my Cuttlebug Snowflake folder for the dry embossing.  The stamp is an old one from The Angel Company from a set called Snowman Nativity.

I colored my image using a Pearl Ex-Press Watercolor Palette.  I haven't used this in ages and thought I'd use a forgotten (hidden in my stuff) coloring tool.  I was trying to decide if I needed some bling but with the shimmer of the coloring.... that's enough.   I like the more simple look with this particular card.

So now pop over to 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown and see what others have come up with! While you're having a look/see over there I'm working on tax stuff (for my stamp/craft business for now).

Great Throwdown, Carol! Wonderful use of the present / presence Truth Almighty! Double emboss was a fine challenge idea. Worked well with these color and highlights to employ double emboss technique.
Awaiting snow. Ice welcome to stay distant. Thankful for no thirty to sixty-six mph wind tonight. Cold air mass encroching from the southwest carrying moisture so ready to shovel in a few days.
Keep Looking UP! mt23stamper
