Home for Christmas by Chocolate Baroque

Good morning, how are you getting on with those Christmas cards? This months new stamps from Chocolate Baroque are a real inspiration to get ahead and make a start on your Christmas cards. I've got a couple of samples to share today, the first features stamps from Snowy Scenes

I created the base layer by stamping the cottage and adding some colour with Derwent pencils. The top layer was stamped with the robin and the stag and again coloured with pencils. I used a spellbinders die to cut the aperture, carefully cutting round the images to slot the die behind them so they weren't die cut  - soooo fiddly but I love the effect.

 I used a zig glue pen around the edge of the aperture and on the cottage scene and sprinkled with glitter. I added one of my favourite Christmas sentiments and then mounted the top layer on 3d foam, adding a white bow to the top of the aperture.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Calendar: anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas: use your favourite things
(Chocolate Baroque stamps, colouring, spellbinders dies and glitter)
Completely Christmas: Anything goes
Winter Wonderland: anything goes for Christmas

Thanks so much for popping by today, hope to see you again soon

  1. In two words I'm not Claire, really must get started. This one is a beauty especially with the robin perched.
