…il vous flatte pour un temps, et puis vous allume tout d'un coup une fièvre continue…

I got in a second Christmas card this weekend; this one features the cute The Penguin and the Marshmallow stamp from Stamping Bella.

My card layout is from CAS(E) this Sketch where I’ve used my stamped image as the round element.  I added the sentiment from the set and heat embossed it, stamping in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink first and then embossing ink with clear embossing powder over the top.  I’ve gone with a muted brown tone to my card to match the hot chocolate the penguin is drinking.

Over at Jingle Belles they are looking for stars or stripes on your card.  I’ve gone with stars with a piece of starry designer paper from Maja Design’s Home for the Holidays collection.  I made my own star embellies too with some La-La Land copper foil and a star punch.  I love that foil, my crafty friend gave me a sample and I’m using up every scrap!

I’m also entering my card in the current challenge at Crafty Gals’ Corner where they’re looking for projects for any holiday.
