For my hop card, I used the new Christmas Greetings set.  To create my card, I repeat stamped the Christmas sentiment in dark gray ink onto a medium gray card base.  I then stamped Christmas in versamark onto red CS before heat embossing with white powder.  Next, I stamped the Merry in versamark, then heat embossed with platinum powder.  The pine tree needles were stamped in lime, and the pine cones in gray before fussy cutting.  I die cut a scallop border, and adhered it to the back of the red CS.  To finish up, I assembled all my pieces and embellished with yellow enamel dots.

  2. The background is great but I particularly love the crisp white embossing - I always manage to get stray embossing powder somewhere it shouldn't be!
