Emboss Resist


Here's my card for today's color combination challenge on Splitcoast. It's also for Sherrod Studio's Tuesday Throwdown to use the emboss resist technique. I used the Christmas tree outline stamp (from Sherrod Studio's Christmas Greetings set) to randomly create a background with versamark. I then embossed it with vanilla EP. I punched out 1-inch squares and sponged them with artichoke, coral and burgundy. I matted them with the same colors and chose one of the sayings from the same stamp set for the center.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day! :)
