Woodland Holiday Cards

Good morning friends

The last time my friend B came for a play date (hubby's went golfing) she brought along her new Woodland embossing folder for me to play with. I embossed a few panels on white card stock, but also tried Kraft and really liked it.

Once I'd added gold and silver metallic Pan Pastels, I'd decided I liked it enough to order one for myself!

Since I'd embossed 4 Kraft panels, I made 4 identical Christmas cards but only photographed one. The deer was die cut from patterned paper with gold foiled bits I added a 'snowy' edge from Kraft - white and cream looked awful. I used the Beach Edges by Karen Burniston for that, and the little bow on the deer is from the Sleigh Gift Card Pop-Up.  I used the MISTI to stamp the words inside each of the cards, so each one would stamp without any 'oopses'.

Below you get a better idea of the foiled accents on the deer.
