The Glory of Christmas challenge 56

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 56: blue and silver. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love to see your blue and silver Christmas designs.

The card blank is a deep blue stardream shimmery card, on to which I've matted silver and deep blue mirror card. The Inkadinkadoo angel stamp is one of my favourite Christmas ones - I inked it with versamark and stamped on to the piece of deep blue mirror card, heat embossing with detail silver powder. The matt silver embossed panel was made with a Craftwell embossing folder run through the eBosser. The little panel used for the Seasons Greetings sentiment was also from that A4 folder and backed with a snippet of blue mirror card that had been embossed with another folder (it was an old snippet and I can't remember which folder was used).

This is also for:
