This actually will be my Holiday swap card. I just have to make 30 of them by September 10. That doesn't seem too hard, right?
The layout for this card was inspired by Beate Johns' poppy anniversary card.
I first inked the snowflakes with VersaMark and then immediately inked them with soft sky classic ink before stamping. This left the ink sticky enough to hold the heat & stick powder. After heating, I poured dazzling diamonds glitter on top to make them sparkle.
The sentiment is embossed with silver embossing powder. Then I used the VersaMarker to color in the letters. We learned this technique at convention and it really makes the outline letters pop!
A little paper piercing and some white taffeta ribbon finish off the card nicely. The swap guidelines were to make a Wow Holiday card that is reproducible and not intimidating. I hope that I've achieved that here!
