Today I am sharing with you the card I created using the stamp set Noel...

This stamp set is great for using the chalkboard technique! I embossed the wreath and sentiment with green embossing powder from Recollections and the snowflakes with white embossing powder from Stampendous. I inked up the edges with fresh snow ink from Papertrey Ink.
 

I used pattern papers from My Mind's Eye Christmas and All is Bright. Cardstock is from PTI. I used Copic Markers to color the bow and berries.

Come join the blog hop...
