Winter Blues

More Christmas cards today...I had a little winning streak a couple of weeks ago...and have used one of the stamps I got with my Handy Hippo prize from Creative Inspirations on these cards. It's called 'Snow Swirl' by Stampendous. I got out my heatgun and embossing powders...not something I've done a lot of recently...but you will be seeing more on Saturday...with the other stamp I got for my prize. I made two cards...one with the stamp embossed in white, and one in silver. I then blended a couple of Distress Inks over the top, then stamped the snow swirl again around the edges.


I did the silver one first...but went a bit dark with my blending...so the swirls around the edge don't show up too well..I forgot they'd dry lighter...oops!


So...I kept the inking lighter on the white one...
