New Dove Sizzix Die and Embossing Folder combo

I recently ordered this new Sizzix die and embossing folder combo #657361. The dove is quite large when cut - about 4-1/2" wide. After you cut the die, you place it in the embossing folder exactly within the "frame" of the design to create the beautiful embossed pattern. There are several other combos just released - a star, ornament, holly leaves and snowman.  I think they are all very pretty!

Here is the card I created with the dove. I sponged Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink all over the raised embossed areas, applied German Glass Glitter to the wing portions, along with a pearl brad, pearl for the eye and ribbon bow on the neck. The verse is embossed directly on the background paper with Fine Gold EP.

The christmas cards I'm recently making will actually be mailed. So I'm trying to keep my embellishments to a minimum to reduce the postage costs of thicker envies.
