were stamped in Versamark onto Neenah White CS and then heat embossed with Malachite embossing powder. I added some Crystal Effects to the leaves and then sprinkled on some diamond dust glitter...chunky, shard-type clear glitter. Have you seen all the amazing snowflakes Anna Wight created with this stuff?? If you haven't, click HERE and check out her tutorial. I bought mine from ebay just like she suggested. After seeing all her awesome designs, I just had to have some! I also added some to the punched snowflakes.
Here's a close-up picture. It makes the card really shimmery, icy, and wintery looking!
The sentiment, which is also from the Branching Out set, was stamped in Black StazOn onto Vellum, I sponged Sage Shadow around the edges (just like I did on the main image and on the white DP panel), and cut the "flag" end with a square punch...another thing inspired by Anna Wight! I glued down just the left side behind the snowflake so the right "flag" end sorta lifts from the CS.
The inside just has the same white DP, matted with black, and then I did some piercing along the bottom with my Ornare piercing template.
