MFP has so many great Christmas sets, it was hard choose which one to use for this hop. The card I'm sharing today uses the sentiment from this set:
 Joyeous Season



I embossed with gold ep to add an elegant touch. I used to heat emboss all the time when I started stamping and I had gotten away from it. I think it is time I started heat embossing again, because it is so much fun.

  1. Beautiful, elegant card MariLynn - love it!
    Thank you for your prayers last week - my hand is healing well, and the chest infection that tried to attack me has not laid me low, thankfully.
    Blessings

  4. I really like the beautiful colors on your card. I agree that heat embossing is fun and it adds such a nice touch. I think it's one of those simple things we forget about from time to time! Nice card

  5. Marilynn - a really lovely card and I peeked at your cathedral window card - what a super idea...I also think the gold embossing is a stand out and have found myself going back to using ep more as well.
