2011 Christmas Cards--Scenic Season

There is nothing I love more than Night of Navy paired with Whisper White.  It has such a crisp, clean feel to it.  I knew it was the perfect combination for my last Christmas card. 

I had long admired the "Scenic Season" stamp set in the SU! catty and finally caved and got it.  It's such an elegant stamp set and so quick and easy to use.  These cards came together in no time. 

Or, what would have been "no time" had I not used VersaMark and shimmery/sparkly heat embossing powder and then hit them again with 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds... Of the four cards I made, these took the longest.  I inked my stamp with VersaMark and then Night of Navy ink and stamped the image.  I then sprinkled on the embossing powder and hit it with the heat gun.  I could only make them three and four at a time in this way.  Oh my. 

But, the effort was worth it.  These are sparklerific and lovely.  What more could I ask for? 

This card uses:
*Stamp Set: "Scenic Season"
*Ink: Night of Navy
*Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy
*Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, some sparkly non-SU! embossing powder
