I created this card for Day 4 of my 10-Day Christmas Papercrafting Challenge on my Stamp & Ink Designs Facebook Group. So many are enjoying the daily challenge and so many participants. I love seeing everyone join in with their projects. You can too! Join my group Facebook page here:
I once again created my own, colored embossing by inking with two inks: VersaMark and Shaded Spruce and then sprinkling with Clear Embossing Powder. I love this shiny and colored look!
