I was going through some old photos and I came across this one. This is a card that I made years ago, back when you actually had to mail in your cards to Stampin’Up when you entered one of their challenges. I mailed this one off, I was sad to see it go as it was very pretty in person, and No I didn’t win the monthly challenge 😦

All the supplies used for this card are from Stampin’ UP. The Cardstock used for this card is Very Vanilla and Brushed Gold. The finished card was 5 1/2″ by 5 1/2″.
The side Panel was stamped with a script stamp with Versa Mark ink, then embossed with Gold embossing powder, it was matted with Brushed Gold cardstock, I tied a Vanilla ribbon and bow and adhered it to the left side of the card.
I stamped a large snowflake on a Very Vanilla Square with Versa Mark ink, and heat embossed that as well. I matted that on a Brushed Gold square as well.
To make the Gold embellishment I used a rectangle piece of chipboard. I covered it with Versa Mark Ink, and gold embossing powder and heated it up to melt the powder, once it was cool I repeated this process three more times so I had 4 layers of melted embossing powder. When I was preparing for the last layer I lined up my stamp so I knew it was straight and as soon as I finished melting the last layer I stamped my snowflake stamp into the hot melty embossing leaving the snowflake impression. No worries if you don’t get a clear impression on your first try, just heat it up again and it will melt away the faulty impression and you can try again 🙂
I stamped the “be merry” in the bottom right corner with Versa Mark and embossed with Gold embossing powder.
I adhered the Large snowflake and the Gold embellishment to complete this card.
