Hello!  This week is technique week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, and we have one that I think will be appealing to a lot of people: embossing.  You can choose to use heat embossing, dry embossing, or even both on your card.

I’ve used both types of embossing on my card.  Once again, I’ve used the color scheme from CAS Colours & Sketches and followed the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.  The cherry red panels were dry embossed using one of my favorite embossing folders.  I used the same ink pad for all of the leaves on the wreath, but I stamped off one set to create the lighter shade of green.  The red berries on the wreath are heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I can never get textured cardstock to show well in photos, but the card base is linen textured.  A shimmery copper sentiment finishes the card.
