A little bit of Christmas

Hello and welcome.  Thank you for all the comments left for me.

I saw Kay from Indigo Blu on Create and Craft a while ago and thought I would have a go at making a card that she demonstrated.
First of all I will show the stamps I worked with so you know what I'm talking about in the  description of how I made it.

This is the card I made.

I started with an A5 Centura Pearl base card
Matted and layered alternate Navy and White card. On the top layer, I masked all but the corner  of the Frosted Bauble Stamp with post it notes, and applied flitter glue, I removed the post it notes and stamped it into the two corners  and then used Winter Dawn flakes  - Kay used part of the large snowflake stamp in each corner of the four corners, but I don't have that stamp so I improvised!
Next I masked the top of the Stag Cliffhanger stamp, again with post it notes and inked the bottom with Denim Adirondack ink. I removed the post it notes and stamped it on a scrap of paper and  then just cut round the frame leaving the white border.
The next step was to cut and emboss the largest Spellbinders 20011 Heirloom ornament die.  Whilst it was still in the die, I did the background using Panpastels.  Next, I masked the bottom of the Stag Cliffhanger stamp, with post it notes,  and inked the top up -  again with the Denim, removed the post it notes and then stamped the image, the die cut is still in the die whilst doing this too.
Finally I cut the flourish from Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and flourishes, attached the sentiment and then put the whole thing onto the card.  Phew!

Hope you like it.  Till next time .....................
