Bah Humbug challenge 33

I recently treated  myself to a fabulous set of  Steampunk Christmas stamps from Chocolate Baroque and the first card I've made with them will be just right for the Bah Humbug challenge this week as their theme is 'something new'. The background was made by spraying Glimmer Mist in red and gold onto some card which was then put through a cuttlebug embossing folder with cogs and wheels which matches the steampunk design. The main design was stamped and embossed with vanilla ice embossing powder onto red card and the poinsettia (also from the stamp set) was embossed with the same powder which has tiny gold flecks in it. The border at the bottom was cut with a Crealies border die which also happens to be another new item - couldn't resist this or the stamp set which has lots of other versatile designs which will be used for Christmas and are also suitable for other occasions too.
