Wrapped & Ready

Years ago I bought a huge jar of Twinklets Diamond Dust from the craft store. It’s the same stuff that is used to make fake fruit look sugary and sparkly. I love using it on my winter cards for glistening snow and I used it for this card.

The House Mouse image is Wrapped & Ready, one of my favorite Christmas stamps. After I colored the image I used Pebble Chalk to make the sky background. I then stamped little snowflakes (Snowflakes TAC) with Close to My Hearts White Daisy Ink… it’s very similar to Stampin Up’s Craft White, it seems to take a bit longer to dry but it’s a vibrant white. Since I’m extremely impatience and couldn’t wait for the ink to dry, I dumped sparkly embossing powder over it. I then added Glossy Accents to the bows, if you look closely you can probably see my fingerprints on the bows from me touching it to see if it was dried… did I was mention I was impatient?!
