Christmas Pudding

I do love Christmas pudding and this Clearly Besotted stamp and die set is perfect for making a quick and simple card.

I used my stitched square die to emboss a square in the centre of the card blank.  I stamped the pudding in brown ink and the leaves in green ink before embossing them with clear embossing powder.  Although there was a separate stamp and die for the holly berries I chose to colour them with Promarkers and add a Wink of Stella.  I also added a a good layer of Wink of Stella to the top of the pudding so it shimmered.  The pudding and holly were then attached to the centre of the card with foam pads.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     Clearly Besotted 'Christmas Pudding' stamps and dies, Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables' die
     Versafine Vintage Sepia and Olympia Green ink
     Stampendous clear embossing powder
     Red Promarker
     Wink of Stella

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - One Image + Optional Twist: Shimmer     
     Alphabet Challenge - Q for Quick and Easy     
     Perfectly CAS - Christmas
     Winter Wonderland - Use Holly and/or Ivy
