I decided to go with blues and whites for my card. Besides, I had ribbon, ink and cardstock in blue. . . and it all matched perfectly, which isn’t always the case.
The snowflake image
is an old one that I had from Holly Berry House.
I used a dollar stamp from Joann’s to stamp the snowflake background
with VersaMark Watermark Ink. Then heat embossed using clear powder. I wanted
the background snowflakes to be subtle so the main image would “pop.” You can
see the glimmer of the embossed snowflakes better in the next photo.
I also added a bit of dimension by popping up the top layer and adding liquid pearls to the blue snowflake.
And, once again, I finished the inside of the card. I printed another snowflake and trimmed the page to cut off just a bit of it. I added liquid pearls to this image also. The sentiment is from Hero Arts-Wonderful Holiday and I used Stampology Turquoise Ink. And it’s all matted in the same blue cardstock.
