Some of you have been on the fence about getting into embossing, and this is the perfect time!!! There will not be a sale like this again, so take advantage of the deal and you'll have your supplies in time to make Christmas cards and presents.
This is a card of mine that was featured on the display boards at the Stampin' Up national convention in 2008. It is actually embossed twice--once with white and once with Iridescent Ice--then dry embossed with lines using your paper trimmer and scoring blade. The moon was added with the white gel pen just on a whim right before I sent it in to SU. Enjoy!
