Fat Robin

This is my first card as a member of the Chocolate Baroque Design team and the first card I made with the gorgeous new Christmas stamps. I think Fat Robin will be one of those all time favourite stamps that come out every Christmas.


The backing paper is from the Season's Greetings cd, printed on vellum and attached to mats of gold and brown card with brads.

The main image is embossed with brown embossing powder and painted with twinkling H2Os. I added flat backed glass nuggets to the snowflakes attached with gold stickles for some extra sparkle

The flowers are made from Kraft glassine, cut with Crealies Flowers 10, the centres are dots of the new Burgundy Stickles. I added some glassine leaves again diecut with Crealies (shapes 12)

To finish off I added a  c robin embellishment made from clear UTEE, heated and then stamped with the Robin corner stamp while still hot.

Thanks for popping by,
 I hope all the projects from the DT this week are giving you lots of inspiration and ideas for your Christmas projects
