Lovely As A Tree Embossed Christmas

Lovely As A Tree Embossed Christmas

One of my favourite stamp sets is Lovely As A Tree so I was excited to use it once again for one of my Christmas cards.  Creating the card base with Basic Black allows the whisper white layer and cherry cobbler layer to stand out.  Of course, the white embossing powder used on the all of the stamped images creates a sparkling greeting.
