Peace on earth ...

... and joy to the world!

I was pleased when I found that the new inkadinkado angel stamp that I've got fits nicely in the space on the ready foiled card blank with just enough room either side to stamp the sentiments. All stamps were inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold.

Unfortunately, because of having to use flash, the photo doesn't do the card justice - the embossing looks much better irl.

This is my card for this week's facebook Sunday's with Santa: embossing.
