Merry Monday #271 - Use Embossing

Good Morning friends and Happy Monday.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and the beginning of a New Year.  It is never too early to get started on your Christmas cards for this year and you can join us at Merry Monday Challenge where Linda is starting us off with a challenge to use dry or heat embossing on our cards.
I chose dry embossing and used the SU Holly EF on the white panel (I thought the holly leaves went well with the holly leaves on the cup & saucer image).  The cup image and the sentiment are from a A Cup of Kindness digital set designed by Julee over at Verve Stamps.  I colored the cup image with Promarkers, fussy cut it, and adhered it with foam tape.  The DSP is from the Mad 4 Plaid 6x6 pad by Photoplay.  I matted the DSP and sentiment panel with black CS and adhered them to the embossed panel, and then to the card base.

Check out all the designers cards with embossing over at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge and I hope you will join us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
