Blue Christmas

Here is another Christmas card in non-tradional shades of blue.  I chose an Elisabeth Bell stamp, available from Funky Kits, for my focal point.  I matted and layered the coloured image, and placed it on the card so that it would look like the reflection in a bauble (that was the idea anyway!).  The backing paper is again by Dovecraft. I have added a panel of white cardstock, embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder, and lightly stippled with a brush and blue chalk ink, to the card.  The snowflake embellishment is made up of a die-cut, made with a Cuttlebug die, and two fabric snowflakes from my stash.  I glittered the central brad so that it would also look frosted.
