2 Press a clean cloth into the white inkpad and wipe it over the top of the embossed images to create the chalkboard effect.

3 Matt and layer the card front with red cardstock and patterned paper. Add a piece of string to the left-hand corner and adhere the die-cut circle to the card front. 

4 Stamp the baubles, cut them out and attach them to the string. Finish with three coloured snowflakes stamped onto die-cut circles.
