My Christmas cards are done!

Here is the final result! I'm so happy with how they came out. And somehow it's a one layer card, which I usually have so much trouble making.
As you can see, it's similar to the card I made before. There are a couple of differences. First, I stamped the snowflake in white craft ink all around the edges for a more solid look; random just looked odd. Then for the focal image, I used the baby wipe technique just like on my gift card holder (same colors). But before I inked up the stamp, I inked it with VersaMark. Then I embossed the image with Irridescent Ice EP to add sparkle. You can use this technique to emboss with any classic ink; just ink with VersaMark first. The VersaMark won't hurt your classic ink pad in any way.
Here's a side view to show some of the sparkle!
Happy stamping!
