Chalkboard Christmas Card

Today I had some time to play with my stamps and made a chalkboard christmas card for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #5 "embossing". Here it is:

For the tag, I used the Simon Says Stamp exclusive set "Tag Sayings". First, I stamped the tag, cut it out and stamped the red striped border. Then I stamped the German sentiment saying "happy holidays". The same tag stamp was used on the black card stock panel, I stamped and heat-embossed it using white embossing powder. Then I did the same with the holly leaves from the Paper Smooches Holly Jolly set. To create the chalkboard look, I smeared white pigment ink over the panel and added some shadows with a white pencil. The stamped tag was adhered with foam tape, then I die-cut two holly leaves, adhered them to the card and finished everything off with "berries" aka red rhinestones.
I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
