Krafty Christmas

For this CAS card, I have combined a couple of challenge prompts. I created my own background by embossing some Bazzil Kraft CS with my new Sizzix embossing folder in the Cuttlebug and dabbing some red ink on the embossed image. The image is from a Woodware stamp set that I bought in the January sale. To add some texture to the card, I stamped it on some felt-like material with black Stazon ink and then coloured it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The ribbon is from my stash and the large button is from Bag-O-Buttons (foof-a-La).
