Victorian Christmas

This has to be my most favorite of the new Christmas Stamps from CTMH.  Christmas Post is so pretty.....love, love, love!  It coordinates beautifully with the Yuletide Carol Collection.  This set also includes an adorable little snowman shown here.  

The background paper comes with the swirls so it was a cut and tape!  The snowflakes were left over from another project.  They were cut from Artbooking.  I inked them, sprayed them with adhesive and glittered!  

That sweet little snow girl was stamped with Colonial White pigment ink and heat embossed in gold. I set the tension on my machine a little loose to get the 'wonky' stitching.  I then inked the edges and distressed them.  

I embellished with some lace and raffia from my stash and some retired gems from CTMH.  The bow is made from color ready seam binding.  I sprayed chocolate and blush reinker/water on my mat and picked it up with the seam binding.  I colored the lace the same way.  

This little lady is taking her tree off to the following challenges:
