Embossing at Bah Humbug

Here's a very quick and easy addition to the Christmas card box for this weeks challenge from Bah Humbug where the theme is embossing.

The Christmas tree and sentiment are stamps from Elusive images, stamped and embossed with clear EP on black card and then i've added lots of brilliance Galaxy gold ink over the top. The embossing acts as a resist and although the photo is pretty bad it looks quite nice in real life (honest lol)

To finish off I've added a gold bow, some gold gems and matted it on some gold mirri card. I made quite a few cards using this technique last year as its so quick and easy.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club: Inspired by a song (Oh Christmas Tree )

Thanks for popping by today.
