Father Christmas -SG #3- Embossing

Hello there!  It's time for another wonderful challenge over on the new Season's Greetings Christmas blog.  Our theme this time is:  embossing.  You can choose heat embossing or dry using an embossing folder.  My heat gun just :-(   But, it's all good.  I had a new embossing border die set from Tim Holtz to try out.  I must say I love it!  I colored 'Believe' with a grey colored pencil in the debossed parts to make it pop. 

I stamped my santa image directly on the note paper.  And then colored it with colored pencils.  I added bling and Stickles.  I distressed the edges to add to the vintage vibe.
