   If you came from " Pricilla " of " Pricilla's Paperie"  then you are in the right place!

 I chose the 'tis the season stamp out of this stamp set. I decided to use a technique I had not done in a LONG time.... heat embossing!
I stamped the stamp in a Versa Mark stamp pad. Versa Mark is like a glue that helps the embossing powder stick, and it can be heated.
I chose Silver Tinsel powder by a company called Stamp-n stuff. (got it at my local craft store.) After I embossed the card, I decided I liked it the way it was, and just added some ribbon to finish it up. My stamping got a little crooked, but I am ok with that. I think it gives the card a little character.

Your next stop on our Year-Round Cheer blog hop is " Marcia " of " Kosanke Cards".
