52 CCC April Technique Challenge-Embossed Vellum

I got another Christmas Card done towards my goal for 2023.  

 I didn't count how many cards I threw away working on my idea!  Nothing lined up right.

My idea was to make an image on the inside of a vellum card and to heat emboss a stamp image on the outside of the vellum.  The inside was colored and the outside was just the image embossed in white.

When closed, you can see the colored poinsettias through the vellum.  

I finally accomplished my idea.  I love experimenting, especially when it finally comes out like I planned.
At 52CCT challenge was to emboss but it did not say dry emboss or heat emboss.  Hoping heating embossing is ok!
