I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine, isn't it hot hot hot here in the UK, almost makes me want to go to work to be in the air conditioning, lol.  My card for you today is completely the opposite of hot as the DT have been lucky enough to have been given some digi's from Crafts and Me to play with and I have taken the opportunity of getting ahead and made a Christmas Card using the image  Esme, and I certainly wouldn't mind a few snowflakes at the moment to cool me down.  Speaking of snowflakes, I used the Whimsy snowflake die to create the edges on this card and distressed with walnut stain distress ink.

I printed the image and embossed several  times using the ultra thick embossing powder.  I then bent it in several directions to create the cracking to give it that extra vintage look.  I stamped the Fronz text onto accetae using timber staz-on ink so that I could place it over the image.  A little shabby white frantage was added to the image and it worked well on top of the ultra thick embossing, so something else you could try with your frantage.

I have used Maja Design's Spirit and Inkido Forever Santa Christmas Music papers.

I added a Vintage Findings Pearl Centre to the poinsetta.

For the smaller poinsetta I have used the cream stamen for the centre. I also added some corrugated card and added some shabby white frantage and some fragments, you can just about see them in this picture.

As usual please click on the photo thumbnails at the bottom to the taken to the products.
