Merry Christmas and a Colour Challenge

Hi Everyone.  Well, it's Christmas Eve, and I would like to wish everyone in blog land a very Merry Christmas.  I wish you well during this season and may you have wonderful times and make many happy memories with family and friends.

When I did my last post, I said that I had done my last Christmas card.  Well, as things have it, I had to create another one.  Actually, it is a gift card holder.  For my inspiration I used the challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary which is to use Whisper White and Silver Glimmer papers.

I just had to use the new Edgelits and Embossing Folders on this card.  Here is a tip to get the embossing folder and  the Edgelit die to line up.  
Decide where you want the Edgelit die cut to be
Take the embossing folder and line it up to where you will be cutting with the Edgelit die
Using your fingers, press on the embossing folder to get an indent of the design
Remove the Embossing Folder and line up the Edgelit Die to your finger embossed design.
Emboss away using the correct sandwich on your Big Shot.
