Chocolate Baroque Christmas Card

Chocolate Baroque are a stamp company I discovered in late 2011 / early 2012 and they make some gorgeous stamps and some really big stamps too.  More recently Craft Stamper magazine gave away one of their snowflake stamps and then I bought another set as a result - one expensive magazine!  I wanted to save the image, that I loved most, to use on hubbies card and it was the last card I made - maybe one day I will make his first! I am going to use the image (last picture) on a few 2013 cards.

Well in all the Christmas rush I forgot to photograph it so now having sat on the window sill for a few weeks I am sharing a few pictures of his card which is a little battered.

With the "belly band" in place

Full view of the parcels - excuse the bent back part!

The image that I love with lots of bling on the tree


  1. Oh Janine, this is fabulous! Love the surprise inside with the cat and dog looking at the treat!!! Sweet card! I FORGOT to give my banjo card to Steve!!! I gave it to him after Christmas and he said he wanted to frame it!

  2. Hi, Janine! Your card is very pretty! The front looks simple but impressive, and your coloring is awesome on the inside. I love the cat and dog in front of the tree! Aren't those snowflakes gorgeous?

  3. I forgot to mention that the photo of Meg is a really nice memorial to her. They are a member of the family, aren't they? I have a black lab named Sam, and I just love him to pieces! I'm a retired dog groomer. Sam looks just like Meg, but black with a white face - we think he's about 8-9 years old.

  4. Beautiful card. I love the design. The stairs are AWESOME!


I love to hear your thoughts - please come back soon.
