Snow falls on the Bayou

So, have you had a chance to check out the newest Verve Visual stamps yet? Aren't they gorgeous?! I love snowflakes, and the sentiments that come in the Winter Wonder set are my favorite of all time for the winter/holiday season. I just know I will be using them time and time again. I like that the circles in the Seasonal Circles set can be used year 'round too. Makes the stamps multi-functional! And how awesome is it that you get them in a jewel case WITH an index sheet all for $10! (That's my favorite part! Hee hee)

I made this card in anticipation of the VV releases last week, but then decided not to use it for my DT commitment. The snowflakes were embossed with clear glitter EP and then cut out and raised with pop dots. ( I inked them with Versamark first, THEN lightly tapped them onto my Blue Bayou SU inkpad to pick up some color before stamping and embossing them. Worked like a charm!) The PP is from Webster's Pages winter wonderland collection. CS and ribbon from SU. The sentiment is embossed with gold EP to match the gold cord hanging the snowflakes. This card was based on THIS one (the second card) I saw by Kwarner.
