Beautifully Baroque Christmas

Here's the second one of the cards that I made at Chris's on Wednesday
using the fabulous Beautifully Baroque stamp - this time a Christmas card.

It's a 7 x 5 inch card (just to give you some idea of the size of the stamp).
Colour Combo is Night of Navy, Silver and White.
The flourish from Everything Eleanor was stamped in Versamark,
then heat embossed with Silver Embossing powder.
The entire stamp was then stamped onto the card using Versamark and heat embossed in Silver EP,  
plus a further image was made in the same way on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock,
then the central section (the Bauble shape edged in blue) was fussy cut out.
Highlights of Night of Navy were added to this to make the bauble "pop" off the card,
then it was stuck on top of the original stamping with dimensionals to raise it.
A 1/4" Night of Navy Grosgrain ribbon bow was added to the top of the bauble.
There you have it - another Christmas card made.
(only another 73 to make!!)
