Some Things Old, Some Things New

on January 12, 2016

 

Christmas has gone by, and I only got half the cards out that I’d hoped.  In this New Year, one nice thing is that we are just seeing our first snow here. I think snowflakes work out great for thank you cards for those holiday gifts!  This is one I’ll be sending out soon.

For this card, I dug out my vellum and embossed my new Crystal Flurries stamps by The Ton stamps on it with some glittery blue embossing powder I have had in my stash a long while.  I adhered the vellum down just under the snowflakes, so it looks like a loose overlay around the edges.  I just love the new DCWV Glitzy cardstock I received as one of my gifts!  The glitter doesn’t come off at all and the sparkle is awesome!   I used a cute die cut from Simon Says Stamp.
