The Squash It challenge this time has a theme of Christmas and stamps - pop along for a visit to them if you don't know what I'm talking about and all will be explained. I started with a square of white card of suitable size for my card and stamped the sentiment in place using the Misti. Next it was embossed using a snowy embossing folder. I then found some red card and stamped two baubles using red ink then heat embossed using clear powder. The bows were stamped onto some tiny scraps of gold pearl card and the baubles and bows were cut using matching punches. Layered everything together with some more gold and red card onto a white card base.
PS - I've just been reminded that the same theme follows for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge so I'm popping over there with my card too - another interesting blog for you to take a look at
