Chocolate Baroque Christmas Cards

Published December 22, 2012 by isisimaginings

Hello lovely blog visitors, three posts in a row, can you believe it?  Trust me, there’s a lot more to come.

I continued with kraft card & white EP, this time using Chocolate Baroque’s Fat Robin & the retired Winter Wonderland sets.

I like the simplicity of these cards, adding the gold stars & the adhesive pearls gives some dimension without adding lots of layers – that’s important, given the cost of postage these days.

These two were made with the Fat Robin trees & the free snowflake stamp, which is also designed by Chocolate Baroque, from the December issue of Craft Stamper magazine.

This is the card I made for the CB Christmas card swap.  Again, it’s very simple; stamping with Versamark, covering with gold EP & heat setting. Then I spritzed it with Perfect Pearls’ Heirloom Gold.

I covered the metal charm with PaperArtsy’s FF Chocolate Pudding paint & Spanish Topaz Treasure Gold.

Finally, a card combining Chocolate Baroque stamps with Dylusions London Blue & Vibrant Turquoise sprays & the Snowflake stencil.  I masked off the trees & embossed with gold EP & used a white pen & adhesive pearls to highlight the stencilled snowflakes, (Salty Ocean distress ink through the stencil).  The snowflakes on the trees are party confetti & they’re slightly holographic.

That’s all for today.  I’m going to spend the rest on the evening on the sofa, watching the final of Strictly – Dani or Kimberley to win! – and quite probably, eating chocolate.  By the way, I must apologise for the terrible photos, the light has been hopeless for weeks.

Have a great evening.  Until next time,

Love & light
