Woodware Challenge - Frantage Christmas

I think this must be one of my favourite stamps this year.....I keep using it and each time it's different.
Here I have stamped JGS169 Christmas Date onto cream card twice using brown ink, or you could try gold embossing powder instead.
Colour the background and frame of one image and the holly leaves on the second image. Cut out the numbers from the second image and carefully sprinkle with Stampendous shabby white embossing enamel. Do half of each number at a time and hold it with a clip-it tool as you have to heat from underneath!!!! Keep sprinkling the powder on top of the numbers until they are all covered. This takes a little time and careful holding of the number so as not to spill the powder or burn your fingers.
Sprinkle a little on the corners and add some Stampendous shaved ice on top and heat to melt.
Layer up the image and stick to a base card. Cut out the coloured holly leaves and 3D them onto the image. Stick the numbers down using PVA glue. You might have to 'crack' the embossing to lay the numbers flat.
To finish off, punch some berries from red card and make into little dome shapes with an embossing tool and soft mat. Stick these down with silicone glue and add a dash of glitter glue here and there.
The ribbon is optional but I quite like it!
I've stamped the background with a small Magenta stamp and gold ink.

I absolutely love this card. This will take me out of my comfort zone(as you know) but I'm going to give it a try.
