Guest Elf at Christmas Kickstart

 I'm delighted to be this month's Guest Elf at Christmas Kickstart - can you hear the bells jingling on my hat? 

This month's theme is You Sleigh Me, so it's all about sleighs and sledges. 

I've gone with an NBUS sleigh stamp from an old Raymond Briggs set, and one of my favourite festive colour combos, pale blue and kraft. 

I stamped it and coloured with alcohol markers then cut and embossed it using a label die and blended blue ink around the edges while the die cut was still in the die. I did the same with the words only blended the blue over the whole open area. 

The kraft background is embossed with a holly leaf folder and I finished it off with wooden snowflakes, bows and pearls.

I'm sharing this with

Jane it's a fabulous reminder card, and I loved your premiere, too! Congrats on your GD position!
I always wonder why everybody else's kraft paper looks better than mine! Wonderful embossed as you've done!
