The Magic of Christmas from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, have you seen the new Christmas stamps from Chocolate Baroque??? I always look forward to postie bringing my new DT goodies but I almost stalk him when its time for the Christmas stamps lol. The first stamps to be released are two beautiful A5 stamp sheets called Snowy Scenes and Turtle Doves (you can find them here and they are on special offer!)

The background was made using some of the new snowflake stamps and the Christmas Magic clear stamp collection. I stamped and embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder. Next I  stamped the snowflakes using Distress Ink in Iced Spruce and lightly distressed the edges of the card before matting on grey card. I stamped the image with the same ink and used a waterbrush to add some shading. Next I used a zig glue pen and clear glitter to add some sparkly snow.

 I die cut the image with a spellbinders die and layered it up over another die cut adding some silver gilding wax to highlight the embossing. I added a de cut poinsettia and a holly vine to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: Christmas in July
Corrosive Challenge: Christmas in July
Crafting for all seasons: Christmas
Hiding in my Craft Room: Christmas in July
