How generous!

It was a high time to use the embossing folder from Sizzix I bought a few weeks ago. Here's my GDT card:
This time I went the 'clean & simple' way, 'cos the embossing folders are so beautiful. I was also inspired by the color challenge from Play Date Cafe:
I embossed the card and then inked with silver ink and made a heat embossing all around. Then I added some glitter all around, hope you can see it.
 The picket fence is a die from Cottage Cutz. The sentiment says of course 'Merry X-mas' and it's a sticker. The fence is placed on 3D foam squares.
The card is very modest, but I think it has a good winter spirit.

Hey Anna! Really nice card and I bet it is even more beautiful in person when you can see the full affect of the embossed areas.
Well done - and welcome to the GDT!
