Winter Wonderland | Warm Winter Wishes with Vanessa

Hello everybody! Vanessa here today with a card sending you warm winter wishes! We didn't have any snow yet this winter, so I wanted to at least create a snowy card. Here it is:

I started with a panel of watercolor paper. It is trimmed slightly smaller than my cardbase. I stamped snowflakes from Scenery: Big Bang Flurries and The Big, the Bold and Seasons with Versamark ink and heat-embossed them using white embossing powder. Then I used an embossing pen and drew the "strings" and embossed them as well. Now I applied water around my snowflakes and while the paper was wet, applied various blue Distress Inks mixed with water so they blended together nicely. After everything was dried, I die-cut the "winter" from white glitter cardstock and adhered it to the panel. Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card. Finally I added some clear sequins for more sparkle.
I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by today and happy holidays to you and your loved ones!!
