Here is just one of the cards I've made recently, with an embossed background, which qualifies for a last-minute entry at Jingle Belles for Embossing Around the Christmas Tree, or The Embossable Dream:
stamp sets - Cookie Cutter Christmas, Label Me Pretty; ink - Garden Green, Soft Suede; Stampin' Write Markers - Rose Red, Soft Suede; card stock - Garden Green, Whisper White; punches - Cookie Cutter Builder, Pretty Label; Big Shot with Holly embossing folder
Back to the subject of questions that I can't answer, maybe you can tell me - does the sunflower from this stamp set look like a poinsettia? I'm hoping the answer is yes, and linking it at Winter Wonderland, where Anything Christmas Goes this week.
stamp sets - Watercolor Christmas, Painted Harvest; ink - Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black; card stock - Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
