Christmas Card Inspiration Day 10 (Final Day)

Here are the two cards I made for the cardmaking day.  Hope you were able to be inspired to create some of your very own Christmas cards.  I do have to tell you that with my first card, I did heat embossing.  I always hated heat embossing.  Usually the powder got everywhere and the heat gun I bought at one of the craft stores would burn my paper before the item was completely embossed.  Well all of that changed when I used CTMH embossing powder and craft heater.  For those of you familiar with embossing, could you imagine being able to hold the heater within inches of your project and not having to move it constantly.  It's true and it has never burned my paper.  Hands down the best embossing powder and craft heater I have ever used.
