Christmas Wishes from Stampendous!

I love to emboss!
And when I find stamps that lend themselves well to heat embossing, I go nuts!
The Stampendous stamps are SO clear and detailed that they stamp and the image holds the powder perfectly every time! And the "Detail Clear" Embossing Powder seeks out every tiny little detail and provides a clear, sharp image!
Don't you love new stamps?  I know I do!

For this card, I kept it simple by stamping and clear embossing the
     Jumbo "Pinecone Boughs" several times off the left edge of my paper.
I then stamped the Cling "Poinsettia Background" in dark red onto white cardstock, and punched out several sized "ornaments".  (1", 1 1/2", and 2" in this case)
The gorgeous sentiment is from the clear set, "Tis the Season".
Notice that the sentiment mat is wrapped with ribbon like a gift, and finished off with a cute little bow on top!
With a bit of inking on all of the edges, popping up the ornaments, and dangling them from the silver bling, I've made a fairly simple,
but pretty, holiday greeting!
I love to make a few simple cards every year that I can later make in multiples should I decide to send out duplicate cards to family or friends.

Time to start making those Christmas cards!
