"Jolly Holiday" Card - Snow and Ice theme

Hi again - Chris here again.  This "Hope that you have a Jolly Holiday" card was made using a plain image which I added WoW Embossing Powders to creating the look of a sparkly snow scene.  This card would be suitable for anyone going on a winter or ski-ing holiday.

To create the sparkly snow use the WoW Embossing Pen to draw along the roof tops exactly where you want the snow. Then sprinkle on Silver Hologram Sparkle powders  and heat with a WoW heat gun. 

I also stamped a "with love" sentiment using the Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set and embossed with Lagoon Blue powders taken from the Primary Range.

The snow at the base of the card was achieved by cutting out two layers of white cardstock, one larger than the other, shaped at the top to look like drifting snow. I then embossed the top of each piece of card with Earthtone Blueberry powders and then dragged my Versamark Embossing pad over the cardstock  and added Silver Hologram Sparkle powder. 

The brads were also embossed by tapping them onto the Versamark pad to make them sticky then dipping them into Earthtone Blueberry  powder. I then heated them and whilst still hot re-dipping them into Silver Hologram Sparkle powders then re-heating again to give a sparkly blue finish.
