Stamps by Chloe and John Next Door Christmas card

Hello everyone,

This is my card for the new ABC Christmas Challenge. The themes this month are

E for embossing,
F for freebie
and G for gold.

I went for E for embossing

and used white embossing powder for the Stamps by Chloe snowflakes wreath, and a John Next Door cut and emboss folder for the background. The e/f actually cuts a circle scene from the centre, but I found that I had a circle die of the same size and was able to raise my snowflake panel over it. The die-cut sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and I substituted a little heart for the dot over the i.

I am hosting the challenge this month and have a little prize for the winner.

I do hope you will visit to see all the wonderful inspiration from the team and you have until 31st March to join us.

I'd like to play along at

I like this the kraft and white and the pop of red in the middle. Love the addition of the little heart too! xx

This is a beauty! I love the colour combination and the way the white embossing pops against the kraft.

Oh Carol, I am so loving this gorgeous card! The colors first off-I just love a kraft color and red together, think they are just perfect together. Then you added the embossing and took it up a notch, fabulous embossing folder! And again, you kicked it up another notch by wet embossing that beautiful wreath in white, that just finished this card off perfectly making that wreath just pop right off the card! Love, love, love! Hugs, Brenda

Nothing quite like a winter card with white ep on kraft, and a pop of red is like icing on the cake. This is perfect for the challenge and I love how you had a circle die that fit your aperture. XXO
