Winter quickie...

Real quick post tonight... I'm pretty tuckered out :) ...

My fellow AngelHood1 sis, Angela, had this awesome card on her blog, and I just had to CASE it! My Hostess Club ladies loved the card, too, so a big huge THANK YOU ANGELA!!!

Stamps: Ornamental Snowflakes, Trendy Greetings
Paper: TAC's basic navy cardstock, misc. grey cardstock
Ink: VersaMark, VersaMagic Night Sky
Other: misc. ribbon, navy embossing powder, hydra sponge

I varied the technique just a bit... using the reverse masking technique, I stamped some of the snowflakes in VersaMark, then sponged with Night Sky & blended to get the orb-like look. Then stamped a few more snowflakes with Night Sky. Stamped large snowflake in VersaMark and heat embossed a navy powder. Applied a little ribbon and stamped sentiment... boom... done.

This would make a great card for mailing purposes since it is so flat... no buttons or brads to hang up those precious postal machines!!

What do you think?
