Merry Christmas!

You ready for this one.. A combination of stamping, die cutting and embossing all rolled in to one.

Take your white base card and layer a slightly smaller dark blue matt on to it. 
Next take a slightly smaller again piece of white card and using your Enchanting Snowflakes stamps create a border around the edge in different shades of blue then mount on to your base card and set aside.

Now take a piece of white card and die cut your Merry Christmas sentiment.  Set your actual wording aside and place the remainder of your card inside Large Snowflake Lattice folder and emboss.  Now layer this embossed section on to a slightly larger piece of dark blue card and mount on to your base card.

Time to create that shadow effect!  Take your previously die cut sentiment and using either foam pads or silicone gel (it's personal preference) slightly offset your sentiment on top of your embossed layer.  Voila.. Your blue is showing and creating a shadow! 

Finally for those finishing touches we added a pearl flourish to the bottom right hand corner along with a bow and a simple pearl in all four corners.

Happy Crafting
