Frosted Baubles Greetings Of The Season Card - Merry Monday #132

There's a great challenge this week at Merry Monday - to use snowflakes, dry embossing and neutral colours. 

 

A while ago I received the IndigoBlu 'Frosted Baubles' stamp as a gift and I hadn't used it - this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to get the stamp inked up!  I stamped the image and inked the edges using Crumb Cake ink and I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink.  I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake CS with a snowflake folder and added white pigment ink over the embossing using a sponge dauber - I loved how that looked on LeAnne's card so I nabbed that idea!  I added a strip of Soft Suede CS and glued my panel to the front of a 5 1/4" square white card base.  To complete the card front I sprinkled on a few rhinestones.


Here's the inside and the envelope front.  I love a kraft, white and red combo for Christmas cards but I don't recall ever making just a kraft and white Christmas card so I was interested to see how that would turn out - and I really liked it!  


Supplies:
Stamps: IndigoBlu 'Frosted Baubles' & 'Snowflake Lace', SU! 'Greetings of the Season' set, Penny Black 'Beautiful Season'
CS: SU! Crumb Cake, Soft Suede & Whisper White
Ink: SU! Crumb Cake & Soft Suede Classic inks, SU! Whisper White Craft ink
Tools: Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, sponge dauber
Embellishments & accessories: SU! rhinestone jewels
