A Winter Bouquet

Hello Everyone Jennifer here again with another Christmas card.   

My goodness I just don't know where this year has gone !!!  Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, please put a penny in the old man's hat !   a long time since I heard that lols.   Well Christmas will be here before we know it! so here is a another idea for a card.  This one I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft's in September 2012 and uses their Winter Boquet Decoupage Stamp Set.

Make a base card from black cardstock.   Matt a piece of white card onto the black leaving a border of black showing.   Take a piece of vellum slightly smaller than the white card and emboss it using the 'Snowflakes, Embossable and an embossing machine. 
Lay the vellum onto an embossing pad and using the embossing tool, go over every snowflake.   Colour the vellum with  distress inks of your choice,  I chose scattered straw, dried marigold and dusty concord.   When dry, fix this to the white card.
Die-cut and emboss the Marianne- Die pine tree branch twice, using black card and glue to the base card.
Stamp the mistletoe sprig from the stamp set, onto the vellum using the black inkpad.   Stamp the Winter Boquet onto white card, four times using the black inkpad.   Colour with distress inks, cut out the flowers only and 3D them using silicone glue.   Fix this to the centre of the base card.
Well, that is it, one finished card.   Take care until  the next blog.   See you soon.
