A little dry embossing for the holidays

I saw this technique online and thought it looked so simple but fabulous.  So I embossed only part of the card stock by putting the paper in the embossing folder horizontally into the top portion of the card base and fed it through my faithful Cuttlebug.  Make sure to line it up with the crease of your card at the top. 
I used a dot pattern (to imitate snow) on one and herringbone on the other.  I scored the card stock afterwards just below the embossing (two times) and then stamped some oversized sentiments  I rounded the edges of the card at the bottom.  I didn't take a picture of the final FINAL card but I ended up adding a rhinestone to the dot in 'holidays' to add a little bling and a line of glitter on the 'Tis the Season card.

How are your holiday preparations coming along?

Paper: Staples 110lb white
Stamps: PTI Think Big
Ink: Jenni Bowlin chili powder and chicken feed
Misc: polka dot and herringbone embossing folders, MS Scoring Board, corner rounder punch, (rhinestone and glitter added later)
