Bah Humbug challenge 35

The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is to use your favourite medium - that is a difficult one because I have so many favourites which fluctuate from time to time.  I love stamping and playing with inks and nearly all my projects contain something or other produced on the Big Shot - either cutting or embossing  and my machine is out on the bench at my side all the time.  This card uses a new free embossing folder from Papermania and which was given away free on the cover of the current Creatuivity magazine along with a set of clear stamps.  I took a piece of black card and spritzed with copper glimmer mist and once dry put it through the folder to emboss, I then carefully highlighted the embossing with some  copper gilding wax on the tip of a finger to bring out the detail.  Background paper was from a Christmas pad from a couple of years ago and I added some copper ribbon, some more embossed black card using a cuttlebug folder and a greeting on copper mirri card.
