My goodness, I had fun with the Real Red and Emerald Envy Glitter Embossing Powder for my Jingle Bells Playground Activity of the Week submission. All three of the Christmas stockings are glitter embossed.

For the center stocking, I inked a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with VersaMark ink, sprinkled Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder and Emerald Envy on another and melted the embossing powder before die-cutting with the Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies.
