The beautiful frosty focal image was created with our vellum card stock. I’ve got a trick on adhering it to the gorgeous Feels Like Frost DSP. Psst, it’s all in the video below!! But first, I would love to share the snowflake technique with you. Look how sparkly and dimensional these are.

Use the die in the Frosted Foliage bundle to cut some snowflakes out of Whisper White CS. Liberally spread your Shimmery Crystal Effects on the surface.  Next, run to the kitchen and grab a coffee filter. Yep, a coffee filter, you’ll thank me later. Dump a little of your Ice Stampin’ Glitter in the coffee filter and press the surface of the snowflake in the glitter, picking up lots of that chunky goodness. Once you’re done with all your snowflakes, just pour the glitter back in the pot. No waste and you’ve contained the glitter. Your welcome!!

Be sure to finish off the inside of your card and the envelope with some quick and easy stamping.  Using three generations of stamping, you’ll achieve different tones of the same color.

And the last technique for this one – how to achieve a Night of Navy embossed sentiment without that particular color embossing powder. All you need is your clear embossing powder. It’s that easy.  Come on in my studio and I’ll show you how.
