Convention 2012 Swap - Chock-Full of Cheer

This is one of my four Above and Beyond Christmas Card swaps.  Here I used the new set Chock-Full of Cheer.  I found a card similar to this on Stampin' Connection and used it as my base idea.  The Designer Paper is also new to this year's catalog.  Lets get started on the tutorial.  There are lots of layers but it is a pretty easy card.

First we emboss the White layer with the Northern Flurries Embossing Folder and Big Shot.

Take a scrap of Whisper White to use for the ornament.  Run your Embossing Buddy over it to get rid of any static.

Stamp the ornament from the Chock-Full of Cheer set in Versamark.

Over a power pal, cover the ornament in Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder.

Shake of the extra so that it is just your ornament.  (Make sure your cats don't leave hairs everywhere or you will have a hair mark in your ornament like I do *smile*).

Use your Heat Tool to heat the embossing powder to set it.

You know it is done when the entire image looks wet.  Be sure not to over heat it because you will scorch your paper and the image will dry up so much it will crack and not look as smooth and nice.  Repeat these steps for the ornament topper.

After all the embossing we want to punch our our ornament with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.

And cut out the ornament topper with our Paper Snips.

Now we assemble our card.  First add the Wild Wasabi and Be of Good Cheer DS.

Then tie the 1/4" Wild Wasabi Grosgrain Stitched Ribbon around the Whisper White.

I adhered the Cherry Cobbler on with Dimensionals.  With the embossing and the ribbon, this helps hold it on better and not be bumpy.

After stamping the saying on, I adhere the Whisper White and then add the ornament on with Dimensionals to pop it up off the cardstock.

Lastly I adhere the entire card to the Cherry Cobbler base and add a Pearl for Bling :)
