White Scallop edge card.
Gold mirri card as a mat - White embossed card.

 I then stamped  with Stazon,  the 3 baubles.
Stamps used were Freebies with a magazine.
Cut out the shapes. Added to the card, with 3d foam.

It is ages since I used my alcohol inks and I was really

 We do require for you to do some stamping, sadly there are many who 
still do not realise we are a stamping required group. 
Please do take a look at the DT's inspirations.

Matted it with silver mirr, and a printed sheet of snowflakes.
My main image was matted onto silver mirri card.
The stamp for the main image is in a set from

I used pencils to colour the image, to give it a softer look.

peel off faux gems, this will keep the card flat for postage.
