Christmas Foliage, Flowers and Snowflakes

Morning everyone, a bit of a long title I know but this is the theme of the new challenge over at Make My Monday which you give you plenty of scope for your entries and help with those Christmas cards still needing to be made. Rather a lot in my case but I'm slowly getting there.
I chose snowflakes for mine as I couldn't find my lovely poinsettia stamp (until I finished this card of course!) and I've gone for a blue and brown colour scheme as I really like that combination of colours.


I started off with a kraft card blank and stamped an Art Impressions snowflake all over with Stormy Sky and Frayed Burlap Distress inks. I added a blue border embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflakes folder and some silver ric rac braid.
I stamped the snowman (Art Impressions) on white card, coloured his hat with a brown Promarker and ink and cut out a panel with a Nestabilities label die then inked the edges. I then inked it up with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with crystal embossing powder. I set this on a larger silver mat cut with the same die set.
I stamped the sentiment (Crafty Individuals) with brown and blue inks, cut this out and set it on a kraft tag embossed with the snowflakes folder. I added this to a blue tag shaped mat and finished off with more silver braid.

The Design Team have made some gorgeous creations to inspire you so don't forget to pop over for a look. Hoping to see you enter too.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Moving Along With The Times - Let It Snow
I Did It Creations - Snowmen
Scrappy Frogs - Kraft Cardstock

Have a great week,
Fliss xx
