Stampin' Up! Dasher and Delicate Doilies create a Christmas Card

Ok, so yesterday I promised you a second card, but I got caught up doing a whole bunch of other stuff, so didn't get around to posting it... I didn't forget about you all though :)
So, this has a few of my favourite things on it... One of the newest Stampin' Up! released ribbon, Seam Binding, the Delicate Doilies stamp set, and of course my favourite Christmas stamp, the a la carte, Dasher....
This is a Very Vanilla card base, layered with a piece of Baja Breeze which has been stamped randomly with the Delicate Doily that I thought looked most similar to a snowflake. I then wrapped a piece of Vanilla Seam Binding around the Baja Breeze and tied a bow, while incorporating my sentiment (Basic Phrases), which has been stamped in Baja Breeze. I stamped Dasher on a scrap piece of Vanilla, in Versamark, and heat embossed him using Silver Embossing powder. I then trimmed it down, and glued it on to a scrap piece of Baja Breeze. I attached it to the card front using dimensionals.
I am entering this into the Stamping 411 Sketch challenge, which came together super easily for me yesterday. I am also entering this into the Wee Memories favourite technique challenge, mine is of course embossing, whether dry embossing or heat embossing... I love the look of it.

Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!
