A New Thank You!

While surfing the net I found a cute card at Nancy's Creative Mess. I really liked how she used the Stampin' Up! "Priceless" stamp and then added the embossed snowflakes over it. Her card was a Christmas card. I just wanted a wintry "thank you" card.

I had just put the Stampin' Up! "Elegant Thank You" stamp on the wood and thought I would give it a try on this card. It's kind of fancy but the swirls on the thank you sort of blend with the swirls from the Priceless set.

The snowflakes are also from Stampin' Up!, they come from the "Holiday Blitz" set. I just LOVE that set. There's so many fun images in it!!!

This card was very easy and quick to do. First I stamped the swirl image from the "Priceless" set. I used Bashful Blue ink. Then I used the Embossing Buddy so I wouldn't get a lot of white embossed spots I didn't want. Then I stamped the snowflake image on using a VersaMark pad. After that I sprinkled the snowflakes with white embossing powder and heated it to set up. Once I was done with that I took a sponge and sponged the ink in on the two sides making sure the snowflakes got covered so they would pop out on the card. I then sponged the two edges. And lastly I stamped the words on. And that was it.

Isn't it just a sweet looking card?
