Winter Wonder

Here's where to go for a great tutorial by Vickie Maduzia on how to create this "Magic Snowflake" -- browsing the blogs, instead of doing my laundry (and other housework), I discovered this beautiful technique -- after playing with this one, I went to bed with inky fingers - but oh, so worth it! Update: I just reviewed the instructions -- she used rubber gloves!

Stuff I used:
Stamps: Posh Impressions, All Night Media, Snowflake Punches, Martha S, Emaginations, Ice Stickles, Versamark, JoAnn's White Craft ink pad, clear embossing powder, re-inkers, ribbon and gems from stash, and a few other items listed in the tut.
(Isn't it grand when you have all the stuff you need for a project?)

Martha, this is stunning. I love that you let the snowflake you created be the focal point of the card. The background papers are lovely and the colors you chose so nice.

Things are getting hectic around here and I don't want to miss the chance to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
