For today’s Christmas card, I heat embossed an image from the Joy & Noel stamp set in copper, then colored it in with Stampin’ Write Markers. I paired it with the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper, which has copper highlights, and card stock in Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot. Copper Trim is the final touch – I stretched the loose ends so it looks almost like a bow.

Here’s what I made:
