I hardly ever emboss anymore it seems... it is so pretty and perfect for Holiday cards. When I emboss I almost always use Versamark and an Embossing Powder of what color I need. I don't think it's better this way or or any other way, I think it's just what you start out doing and it becomes comfortable and sticks. The large poinsettia is one image, stamped multiple times to create my matching Poinsettia DP. I embossed with gold and colored the flowers with Copics. I trimmed against the edge of the flowers to create the edge. On the "Noel" I also did a second stamping to get a duplicate of the small flower to cut out that I could rotate and pop over the one in the "O". Obviously I am loving my new Nesties! The gold card stock I ran thru a Cuttlebug Folder for some dimension and that layer as well as the red are popped up with foam tape. Finishing bow and jewels. Done.
