I like to play along with Merry Monday as often as I can so I'll have a decent number of Christmas cards ready at the end of the year. This week they're asking us to use kraft cardstock.
I like the look of pencils on kraft so I gold embossed the image from PTI and colored it with Inktense Pencils. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I cut the panel with MFT's scalloped rectangle die and popped it up on foam. Just to show you how fickle photography can be: I laid this card down because the light from my window didn't leave a shadow like it usually does. The colors came out well but the top scallops don't show up. Maybe I need to stand on my head and hold my tongue just right. ;)
