Crazy4Cocoa & Friends C4C25 - Dry Embossing

Welcome to the Crazy4Cocoa & Friends challenge #25. This week we're dry embossing our cards. I stamped the top inside portion of my snowglobe embossing folder with pear pizzazz ink and ran it through the big kick to create the background. I'm using the Santa's Helper Cocoa image that was colored with Copics. I added some liquid applique to the fur on Santa's hat, and added a sentiment from the Christmas Tags stamp set. I added some ribbon and die cuts with a labels 4 from Spellbinders, and my card was done!

I hope you'll play along with us and get some of those Christmas cards finished for your stash, so grab your Cocoa or cute critter images (like Rhubarb) from SNSS, and let's get started! Ready, set, emboss!!

When uploading to the galleries, please tag your creations with C4C25.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Thanksgiving!
