Victorian Christmas

This card was a little out of my comfort zone, trying to create a Victorian-style Christmas card.  I really like how it turned out though, and I'm glad I stepped out of my box to try something new.  It's always a good idea to try new styles and techniques so you can become a better stamper and creator.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!


I used the new Christmas Blessings stamp set (123809) from the big catalog.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Merry Moments Simply Scrappin' pack (126911) in the Holiday Catalog.  I received the Merry Moments Simply Scrappin' pack FREE for attending the Stampin' Up! Chattanooga Regional Event!  Yay!  I never would have realized just how beautiful the paper was in that pack if I hadn't received it as a FREE gift at the event.
Other items used are --
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake (lightly sponged over the raised embossing and around the greeting)
Ribbon:  Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding (120992)
Details:  Houndstooth Embossing Folder (123134), Decorative Label Punch (120907), Blender Pen (102845), Retired Ritzy Red Stampin' Glitter, Dimensionals (104430) and Glue Dots (103683)
