Embossed Angel

Adding to my Christmas card stash.  This week's Bah! Humbug! challenge called for embossing.  I inked up this pretty Inkadinkado angel and embossed her with gold embossing powder.  I inked the outside edge of Spellbinders Mega Rectangles then cut and embossed the image to get that sharp border.  I also cut the card base with the largest die from that set, embossed the front panel with a Cuttlebug snowflake folder, and tapped the stamp pad on the snowflakes to bring them out a bit.  The ABC Christmas challenge this time around is also embossing, plus three different embellishments.  The gold vellum snowflakes are from a Cuttlebug die.  The word is a metal word from Colorbok.  It was silver, but I colored it with a gold DecoColor marker.

Nancy, this is gorgeous! I have that stamp but I don't think I've used it yet. You have me inspired now! That Nesties set is so versatile for cards and I like that you used it for the card shape. Good thinkin'! {{hugs}}
