Merry Christmas Embossed

This is the 20th week of A Card a Week Challenge. One card a week--for 52 weeks--with a preset challenge for each month. May is embossing month--using my Big Shot or my heat gun.  Every Tuesday-or Sunday, I will post a card that fits the theme of the monthly challenge. This is the final card for May and I used heat embossing for a Christmas card.

I made this card with a great sentiment from Gina K Designs called Noel.  I used gold embossing powder and cut it out with a Gina Marie die called Cross Stitched Circles.  I layered over some gold vellum from a retired Stampin' Up paper pack called Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum.  I really like the look of this card and hope you do too.

Here is the inside of my card:

I hope you will stop back each Tuesday to see my creation for my A Card a Week Challenge!  This is the last embossed card for May.  June is "try a new technique" month--so that will be a new challenge every month.  I might edit it a bit to "try a technique I have not done in many years.........."

This is a beautiful card. I bet it gleams even more in real life. I love the simplicity with the sentiment as the focal point. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
