Emboss Resist Christmas

More Christmas cards. I am playing catch up with these. Would you believe I missed the deadline for Tracy's challenge by just one day. I was very excited by this one I must say. I got to do one of my favorite techniques.

The challenge was to choose one technique from the following 5 techniques and complete 5 cards.

1. Spirelli - String Art
2. Shaving Cream
3. Faux Linen
4. Emboss Resist
5. Cracked Glass

Well, I chose Emboss Resist. I just love the effect once it is finished. Stamp sets are Snow Swirled and Best Yet from Stampin Up. I used Purely Pomegranate ink, cardstock and ribbon for this card. I am very happy with the result, I think this is my favorite so far.

The Extra-Giga punch made my circle and SU large oval and scalloped oval was used for the sentiment. I dry embossed the white and sprayed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist to give it a little sparkle. I posted double pics as one shows up the embossing pretty well and the other you can see the shimmer from the mist.

* I entered these cards in two challenges this week. A Spoon Full Of Sugar has a Christmas theme and ABC Challenge has an Embossing theme. My cards fitted both these challenges. It has been a while since I was able to join challenges. Isn't coincidence awesome. Thanks for looking
