Annabelle Stamps Challenge ABSC054 - Take 2!

I received more delicious AnnaBelle Stamps products in my happy mail yesterday, and couldn't wait to put together another entry for their weekly challenge - a sketch (challenge post here).  

I referred to some fun little baubles I had made previously with the Cuts By Design - Decorated Christmas dies and the new Decorated Christmas co-ordinating stamp set, and this new entry makes use of those!  I had played around with the dies and the decorated bauble stamps when I first got them last week, and I did some silver heat embossing on them - they came up a treat!  

Then, in my happy mail yesterday came along the fabulous Cuts By Design - Borders 1 die - perfect timing!

I have made my first easel card for this challenge entry, which in itself was a lot of fun.  The card face of the easel card is what I have decorated for this challenge, using a 4x4 piece of white cardstock.  I have made a red frame using the "My Creative Time - Just Simply Live" polaroid die, although I have removed the fancy edge for this piece.  I used a section of the Border die in dark green for the background of the frame, and then set my silver embossed baubles on silver DMC metallic floss inside the window.

I then double-matted some white cardstock on red, to put as the stopper of the easel card, and included the sentiment "Celebrate the Magic of Christmas" from the Jewelled Tree stamp set I also received yesterday.

A few bits of bling on the bottom of the polaroid die and some silver faux stitching around the sentiment, and my card is done!  I love it!

Thanks for visiting!

Love this beautiful Christmas card Deb! I can feel those Annabelle bauble stamps and dies calling to me. How have I resisted for so long??

Have a lovely weekend!
