Joyeux Noel

I'm still feverishly working on getting my Christmas cards completed - I still need to take the yearly holiday photo of the boys so I can add it into a few of my cards, hopefully I'll get that finished up tomorrow!


I love the Chalked Emboss Technique from the current Technique Junkie Newsletter, it's a great way to use your Pastel Chalks.  Here I've used the technique with STAEDTLER Soft Pastel Chalks and the Snowflake Texture Fades folder.  To embellish I silver embossed the sentiment from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate, added some Tulle and Silver Snowflakes using Spellbinders Create a Flake Three dies.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods

Ink - Versamark, Blue
Card Stock - Blue, Silver, Navy
Other - Glue Stick, Tulle, Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Spellbinders Create a Flake Three, STAEDTLER Pastel Chalks, Brad, Big Shot, Snowflake Texture Fades Embossing Folder

Beautiful in blue, guess I can't send you mine, cuz they are so similar, how about just a photo of Teke with his santa hat?!!
