This week's Cat's Pyjamas challenge (#322) was embossing. I started looking through my TCP stamps and pulled out Bunny Christmas, since I hadn't used the bunny knitting the Christmas sweater image yet. As I pulled it out, I thought the Cable Knit Embossing Folder would be perfect to make a background! As I was pulling out what I needed to make the card, I spotted on my challenge sheet the colour combo from Stampin' Royalty #345 - Delightful Dijon + Cherry Cobbler + Always Artichoke and thought it would work well with the other items I had picked. (I have to say, I really like how this colour combo looks on a Christmas card - it brings a very nice vintage feel to it, which here suited the ugly sweater theme well). Still on my Prismacolor pencils kick, I used those to colour my bunny image and the two little holly images on each side of the sentiment.
The sentiment, which reads " 'Tis the Season- Ugly Sweater Season", was embossed in Platinum powder and the slight gold sheen works really well with the Dijon background. Each side was decorated with a line of cross stitches, using the Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics. I was looking for a piece of DSP with Cherry Cobbler on it and found was I was looking for in the retired Festival of Prints paper stack.
