CCEE Partial Embossing

This week Vicky challenged the CCEE stampers to use only a portion of an embossing folder. We could choose any theme we like, but she did remind us that Christmas is around the corner!!



I'm always up for making a Christmas card so I did go with that theme. My partial embossing is on the lower half of the white card stock on the base panel. I gold embossed the 10 Pt Ornament image (by Rubbernecker) behind the poinsettia, which is a Spellbinder die. I used a gold leafing pen to add a streak of gold to the poinsettia petals. After I did it, I wish I hadn't, but I was too short on time to die cut and shape another poinsettia. I love the richness of Stampin' Up's Cherry Cobbler ribbon!

Come play along with us, if you'd like. You can get all the details on our CCEE Stampers' blog!

Supplies I used:
Stamps:  10 Pt Ornament (Rubbernecker)
Paper:  White, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi
Ink:  none
Accessories:  Poinsettia Spellbinder die, Snowflake embossing folder, dimple corner punch, Cherry Cobbler ribbon, dimensionals, Versamark, gold embossing powder, heat tool, gold pearl, leaf punch

I was admiring the gold pen!! I've tried using gold through the die, but with mixed results, and I was thinking how good yours looked - and it's a drop-dead gorgeous card, too!
