Kickin' Off Christmas Blog Hop!!

Thanks so much to Amy and Samantha for including me in this Blog Hop.  If you have come here from iCopic's Blog you are in the right place :-) If you read my Blog regularly you know that I love Amy's (Chomas Creations) products!! I have been using them for a long time but just recently started using the Embossing Tip. Here is a card that features the Embossing Tip along with the Mini Gel Pen Holder.
I used the Embossing Tip with the mat and embossed the design from my Gypsy onto velum. It is unbelievable how this tip works!
The sentiment on the front and the snowflake on the inside of the card were drawn with the Mini Glen Pen holder. My all time favorite!
 After the card base was cut, I cut a frame for the front of the card and the inside of the card. I sandwiched the velum between the two and cut away the extra letting the light go through the velum.
Here is the inside of the card.
Now it is time for you to go to Stephanie's Blog and see her creations--but come back tomorrow! I will be using the Mini Gel Pen holder and Copic markers.
Please make sure you check out everyone's creations! 
There are some prizes along the way :-)

Here is the Blog Hop order in case you missed something and want to start at the beginning:
