Snowflake Thanks

This week you will be seeing a series of Holiday Thank-you Cards.  I think this one is my favorite, I just love the soft colors and the subtle sparkle.

I wasn't sure at first about this color combination, who ever heard of green snowflakes! But I really like how this turned out. I stamped 3 of the largest snowflake first in River Rock. Then I stamped the middle size snowflake in Always Artichoke and finally I stamped the smallest snowflake in Pear Pizzazz. After stamping the snowflakes I covered the whole piece in Versamark and sprinkled on some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat set it. I've used that product on so many cards this season - it really adds a great sparkle. The color of the framing layer is River Rock and I added the cute little edge with the Scallop Border Punch.

The snowflake stamps are from the Snow Swirled stamp set. Its a really great stamp set because it has a couple of sentiments and a really pretty tree as well as the snowflakes. I think everyone should have at least one snowflake stamp set and this set has 3 different snowflakes in 3 sizes. Its kind of hard to see in this picture because the smallest snowflake looks like a star on top the tree - but it really is a separate stamp. 

The sentiment on this card is from the Heard from the Heart stamp set - I thought this made a good Christmas Thank-you. 

Look for another holiday thank-you card in tomorrow's post.
