embossed die cut Christmas adventures

Stephanie and Lauren, with their special guest Steph C, have been looking for embossed Christmas cards for the past two weeks at Jingle Belles; I'm a little late, but when I saw the Dies to Die 4 challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, I finally got a clue:
stamp set - Cheerful Christmas; ink - Versamark; Stampin' Emboss powder - Silver; card stock - Wild Wasabi, Brushed Silver, Pistachio Pudding; Big Shot with Filigree Frame embossing folder and Labels Collection framelits

Then, I got another clue and remembered that the CASE-ing Christmas card would also be perfect for embossing and a die cut!
stamp sets - Very Merry Tags, Festive Flurry; ink - Perfect Plum, Versamark; Stampin' emboss powder - Gold; card stock - Whisper White, Soft Sky, Brushed Gold, Perfect Plum; punches - Confetti Stars border, 7/8" Scallop; seam binding ribbon - Soft Sky; Big Shot with Festive Flurry framelits 

While I'm out linking up to challenges, I'll join in at Christmas Card Challenges, where the theme this week is Anything Goes. Although I'm sliding in at Jingle Belles with less than 24 hours, I have plenty of time until Christmas, and happily I'm two more cards ahead for that challenge!
