One Christmas card, two challenges

This card is for two Christmas challenges

ABC Christmas challenge which is D for distressing

2012 Christmas Card Challenge #14 using embossing

I used a snowflake embossing folder and then rubbed some of the colour from the raised part of the design

I couldn't have got a better match for the the cardstock and ink pad

I've seen on Create and Craft an accessories pack which includes a sheet for removing the dust created by distressing.  I 'make' my own which cost less than two pence each.  Just take a clean baby wipe and leave it to dry and there you have one dust buddy :o)

Materials used

Stamp-It The Angel Said rubber stamp
Cardstock DCWV
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Memento Bahama Blue ink pad
Woodware paper trimmer with deckle blade
3D foam pads
