For this card, I used all of the snowflakes from the Folk Art Snowflakes stamp set by Gina K. Designs. I stamped some on grey card stock with versamark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder. I stamped some more snowflakes as well as the Merry Christmas sentiment on white card stock and embossed them with gold embossing powder. The sentiment comes from a Gina K. Designs stamp set called Christmas Silhouettes. I ran all of my snowflakes through my die cut machine using their coordinating dies. I had to fussy cut the sentiment with my scissors. I wanted to add a white panel behind my snowflakes. However, I felt it was just a little to plain. To add some texture, I ran my white panel through my die cut machine with a polka dot embossing folder. The white panel was cut to (4.75x4.75"). To add even more elegance to the card, I added 2.5" vellum strip across the center of my card to back my sentiment, which I popped up with foam tape. I layered my white and gold snowflakes on top of my grey and white ones, then scattered them around my sentiment. To add some sparkle, I decided to center my snowflakes with some gold gems.
