Christmas Card Club Challenge #19 - Embossing Wet or Dry

Hi Crafters,

Thank you for all your kind comments yesterday regarding the loss of our beautiful cat Tina, we are all missing her dreadfully, she was such a character and to have her taken from us suddenly like that is very difficult to come to terms with.

On a brighter note it is only 96 days until Christmas Day and challenge #19 of our Christmas Card Club. I'm posting a day early again as I have another post for tomorrow.  My card features both wet and dry embossing.

Sue Wilson Embossing Folder - Swirling Holly
Sue Wilson Dies - ~Vintage Bauble
Crafters Companion Sentiment Stamp
LOTV Tag stamps
Dovecrafts Ribbon
Glitter card

This folder and die set was a naughty little purchase the other day but I thought they were so lovely I couldn't resist. The sentiments have been wet embossed with black detail EP.

More SWilson goodness on this beautiful card. The red ornaments are stunning against the crisp white embossing. Love how you added the silver tops & chains and the sparkle & jewels trim on the ornaments too. Those filigree corners are grand trims and work great with the embossed pattern on the white, ditto the printed ribbon that echoes the sentiment. Just a gorgeous card. TFS & Hugs

The red and white are so striking. You did a great job on both kinds of embossing, especially the black powder. It can be a royal pain. Hugs!
