I love the emboss design and highlighted the raised areas with a little Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and then added some prisma glitter to the little dots and starry areas. 
I then glittered up some snowflakes and popped them behind the sentiment. 

I think this would look fabulous in a variety of colours, don't you!


and I finished the inside by embossing the card and then running it through the big shot again to flatten the design a little bit.


for the envelope I inked the embossing folder and laid the envelope on top to give a subtle design look. 



So now it's YOUR turn to get out your Christmas stash and join in!

Hi Lois! Your Christmas card is very pretty, inside and out! The font on your sentiment perfectly complements the embossing pattern. Thanks for sharing with us at Cards In Envy Challenge; and Merry Christmas!

Embossing adds such a lovely touch to your design, Lorraine, and blue for Christmas is special to me.

I love the soft ink blending you did on the embossed panel! So beautiful. So gorgeous. Also, the glitter snowflakes look so beautiful around the framed sentiment. So nice to see a break from the red and other traditional colors with this elegant design! xx Ankita
