I used my all time favorite Basic Grey papers.....I pulled out my new Cuttlebug embossing folder called "Lace Tree"...and after I embossed the yummy green paper....I lightly sanded over the raised parts to make the white core of the paper show through.....just a different way of "highlighting" or "accenting" your embossed piece. The merry & bright stamp is one of my new sets from Cornish Heritage Farms called "Christmas Expressions"...it has lots of Christmas sentiments in the set and I LOVE IT!!!! I wanted to stay with a very simple almost flat card....so whoever the winner may be will be able to send them through the mail without having to pay an arm and a leg....postage is so outrageous these days!!! Okay, that's all for the lace tree card.....check back tomorrow and I'll have another one to show you. THANKS for visiting me today.....HUGS!!!!
