SHC - Christmas in July

... Morning! I'm running a bit late with my post for Seven Hills craft this week. It's been a bit of week here. However, I managed to find a bit of time this morning and made this quick and easy Christmas card:

Stamps: Colorado Craft Company - Savvy Sentiments Merry Everything, Big & Bold Slimline Nordic Snowflakes
Inks: Versamark; Gina K - Sea Glass, Powder Blue, Wild Wisteria
Accessories: White Card; Silver and Clear Embossing Powder

I'm submitting this to Never-Before-Used-Schtuff - NBUS#40 - the stamps are all new to me this month.

This card is super easy to make. It's a mini-slimline card measuring 6¼" x 3¼". I stamped the greeting in Versamark ink and heat embossed with silver powder. Then I arranged the lovely snowflakes along the top edge of the card, stamped them with Versmark and heat embossed with clear powder. I then blended soft aqua, pale blue, and lilac inks to reveal the snowflakes. I love this technique - it's so pretty. I haven't, as yet, decorated the inside, but I'll do that before I send the card out.

That's all from me today. Thanks for dropping by and for leaving your comments, they are very much appreciated.
