Barb's Bingo - Another Card Sketch Challenge

Here's yet another Christmas card! You'll be seeing a lot of those in the next few months! This one is for Barb's Bingo Challenge so she'll draw an extra number for Bingo! I'm one number away from winning, so I'm hoping it gets drawn on Monday! Here's the link to the sketch.

I again used the Wintergreen designer paper, this time choosing the snowflake print paper. I almost just used the snowflake print with plain Sage Shadow for the main part of the card, but it looked too plain, so I added another piece of designer paper instead. I stamped the "Merry Christmas" from Holidays and Wishes in Sage Shadow on Whisper White cs, then matted it on Sage Shadow cs. I stamped the three snowflakes from the Perfect Presentation set in Sage Shadow as well and punched them out with the 3/4-inch circle punch. They looked too plain, so I covered them with VersaMark and embossed them with Iridescent Ice ep. Then I adhered them to the card with dimensionals. Then I thought the "Merry Christmas" looked too plain, so I stamped over it with VersaMark (using my trusty Stamp-a-ma-Jig!) and embossed it with Iridescent Ice as well. So there you have it - quick and easy!

Wow, Shannon, I'm in love with this card. So soft and pretty. I already had the Wintergreen paper on my wish list; your card just made me put the paper up towards the top of the list! Love the embossed snowflake accents. Thanks for sharing and giving us an extra bingo number.
