Christmas Kisses from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, its my turn to post over on the Chocolate Baroque DT blog today and I'm sharing a make made with some of this month's gorgeous new releases. This card features both Gingerbread Christmas and Exquisite Edges

I love these ornate edge stamps and I thought this one had a look of mistletoe so I decided to create a Christmas card. I stamped the edge four times on kraft card with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I cut them out and layered them up with 3d foam pads to create a frame. The focal image is from Gingerbread Christmas, again stamped with versamark on kraft card and embossed with white EP. I  stamped the sentiment with  Festive Berries distress ink and used the same ink with a waterbrush to add a little colour to the rest of the image.  I stamped snowflakes from the same stamp set into the corners and again embossed them with white. Once my frame was in position, I added little red pearls and created faux stitching with a white pen. I made some little candy cane 'kisses' by stamping the candy canes onto kraft card with red ink and using a white pen to colour the open areas. Here's another view to show the dimension a little better.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: no designer paper
