Home for Christmas

Home for Christmas.
I think that's what we all want for the holidays.

Another simple card today using an embossed background using a Sizzix Embossing Folder.
TIP:  to get a deep impression when embossing, lightly spray the paper with water before running it through your machine.

I stamped this wonderful postcard image from Impression Obsession and cut it down using a circle die.  It is a very large stamp and I wanted to highlight just the house part of the image.  
I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts and pop dotted the scene over the snowflake bkg.


 Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ICE INSPIRATION

The Male Room- WINTER/CHRISTMAS WISHES

Craft Stamper- SNOW AND ICE

 The Crafter's Cafe- CHRISTMAS/BIRTHDAY



Thanks for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Hero Arts, Impression Obsession/ eb folder- Sizzix/ blue pearl/ Cuttlebug/ ink-Memento/ pop dots/ circle die
