Emboss It! SOS Challenge #69

 Hello everyone!  This week at Shopping Our Stash the challenge is to use EMBOSSING! Your project must contain something embossed, using either heat or dry methods or both!  The talented DT has some wonderful samples to inspire and encourage your creativity! Check out the main SOS blog as well as the individual DT members' blogs...they're all listed in my sidebar!

For my card I decided on a Christmas card because I love the scrolly letters of that sentiment when richly embossed with gold or silver. I used Gold Embossing Powder from PSE, which has been sitting in my stash for over a year...and that was after it sat in my MIL's stash for several years! She "gifted" it to me along with her heat gun! I also used Tim Holtz/Ranger "Distress Embossing Ink".
I also wanted to use a Sizzix embossing folder I bought on sale last year and never used yet! It is called "Evergreen" and this tree-lover here is thrilled with the dry embossed effect. I even dabbed a little white ink on it to make the detail show a bit better.
The green cardstock is from my stash and the print holly paper is from The Paper Studio.
The die cut is from the Spellbinders "Fleur de Lis Accents" set.
Rhinestones and ribbon...from my stash as well.
And a touch of Stickles, as always!

Hope you will join us for this easy challenge at Shopping Our Stash!
Everybody likes to emboss, don't they?
See you there!
