I used an embossing folder for mine but a paint effect, paper or even in the image would work!

I used my favorite Puffy Paint again on this one, it seems a staple when I'm doing Christmas cards to add that little extra touch of texture. And I think the "outdoors" theme went really really well with the woodgrain embossing.
I hope you liked this little guy too and will come along and share your Christmas cards with us at Christmas Card Challenges this week.
