Christmas Card - Hearts Come Home with Bokeh Dots & Softly Falling

I've recently been having a lot of fun with the Bokeh Dots stamp set - one of the new Distinktive stamp sets.  There are two stamps in the set and I decided to use this image as a starry night background.

Christmas card with Bokeh Dots Distinktive stamp background and Hearts Come Framelits

I stamped the Bokeh Dot background onto a Whisper White scrap with Rich Razzleberry ink (I think!  I made a bunch at the same time - it could be Fresh Fig!)

The base card is Fresh Fig and I embossed the Gray Granite layer with the Softly Falling embossing folder after I had stamped the greeting (from Blended Season) in Fresh Fig ink.

A little bit of Wink of Stella and Whisper White Craft ink for snowy elements

I cut the smaller houses in the Hometown framelits from Basic Black cardstock and then used a damp paint brush and some White Craft Ink to add snow to the rooves, trees, snowman and a hint in the foreground.  

I glued some Daffodil Delight pieces to the back of the houses to look like cheery, warm lights.  I also cut the same run of houses from Whisper White cardstock and glued a couple of little pieces to the houses.

In my next post, I'll share the card that I made with those white houses!
