Hello everyone,

As easy as yesterday's card was crafted, today's took forever. Thank goodness there are so many really wonderful challenges in blogland because I really needed them for today's card. I started with this month's In Style Stamps Blog sketch. challenge. Today's C.R.A.F.T. Challenge was to incorporate dry embossing while Charisma Cardz asked for a Christmas card.


The background paper is Close To My Heart New Englad Ivy which is embossed with a Cuttlebug Winter Wonderland folder. The patterned layer is Close To My Heart Mistletoe. The image is Inkadinkado Holiday Silhouettes, stamped on a piece of Stampin' Up Very Vanilla in Wild Wasabi and heat embossed with Close To My Heart Silver Pearl. The sentiment was cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Four. The embellishments are Close To My Heart Pearl Opaques.

For as difficult as this card was to craft, it certainly turned out beautifully. I love how Inkadinkado has incorporated holiday images within the overall image. They always turn out wonderfully and heat embossing makes it really special. This card is actually very simple which allows the image to really shine.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
