I have made my second Xmas card this year.
Since the STAMPtember release has a lot of Xmas products, 
I decided to use them and warm my hands before the season.
Those who know me will not be surprised by the non traditional colors 
I use almost always on my Xmas cards. 

I started with the background using the new 
I stamped it with embossing ink, covered with white embossing powder 
and heated the pattern with my heat tool. Then I just played with several 
shades of blue to get my background done. 

Then I took my SSS STAMPtember Festive Trees and did exactly the same: embossed in white and colored with several shades of green. 
Finally I fussy cut them.
I also stamped, embossed and fussy cut the star taken from 

For my frame I used Sizzix Shape Strips and cut the stars all around.
I smeared the Old Silver Wax on the khaki paper to get some shine.

Finally I composed all the elements, added paper dolls colored with Distress Fosilized Amber Marker and some silver tiny snowflakes (Thanks, Sandra!)
