Many thanks to Rox for this week's sketch challenge; it couldn't have come at a better time as I hadn't yet designed the fourth card for my stamp club meetin this morning! :) So here's my gift card holder...many thanks to CherylPenner for inspiring me to use a spectrum pad for the letters (I had to do an order just to get that spectrum pad!) See Cheryl's card here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...8&cat=4861
My "theme" this month for the stamp club was stuff that sparkles, in particular Iridescent Ice embossing powder (which I think I'm addicted to). This card uses it two different ways--I inked the Swirling Stars wheel with VersaMark and them embossed with II so it's kind of sparkly tone-on-tone, and then I did the snowman's head and the snowflakes on the inside with craft Bashful Blue and embossed with II so they sparkle too. The snowflakes are from Merry because I liked the smaller size better for the inside of the card.
The snowman's hat and scarf are stamped on scrap paper, cut out and adhered to the snow panel. Wish I'd scanned the one I did where the S wasn't upside down, but oh well! :) I colored in the snowman's scarf with markers to match the spectrum pad.
