Karen's Doodles Challenge 14 - Embossing

This week at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog our challenge is Embossing - Dry or Heat.  For my card, I chose to use Bigsby Cookies.  You can purchase this as a digi image as well as a rubber stamp.  It is never too early to start your Christmas cards. 

I sized the image and then printed it onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Bigsby - E41, E42, R20, E01
Hat - R29
Cookies - E13, E11
Plate - YR21, G24, R29

After die cutting him out with my Spellbinders Label Twelve die, I added Sugar Sparkly Fluff to the hat and pom.  I love this stuff, it is white with little flecks of black as well sparkly glitter.  The perfect fluff for Santa hats.  Using a 5 x 7 inch Christmas Countdown Cuttlebug embossing folder, I dry embossed a piece of Scarlett Coredinations paper.  Then I sanded off the raised area to reveal the lighter red core of the paper.  I created the Poinsettia with my Serendipity stamp and a McGill birch leaf punch.  I dry embossed them so they would have a rounded shape.  Finished size is 5x7 inches. 

Won't you please join in on the fun? You could win....
