Snow Swirled

I am so sorry, I left you all and have been gone for 3 weeks. We had a great time, attended a rally, saw lots of old and new friends and went lots of places and saw lots of neat stuff.
We had a spot right up front at one campground that was awesome. Every morning and late afternoon the deer would come out looking for food. There was usually at least 18 or 20 of them total, including a couple babies.
Now, back to Stampin Up and making cards and gifts. Snow Swirled caught my attention right off. I love this set, it's so usable. This is a pretty simple card:
Bashful Blue,
Marina Mist,
Whisper White.
Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder
2 1/2 inch Circle punch
1 3/4 inch scallop punch
Marina Mist Dotted Swiss Ribbon
Decorative Label punch ( cut after first punch and punched again on the other side)
Snow Swirled Stamp Set
Use the snow flake stamps in the stamp set using Bashful Blue on the white paper, then run it through the big shot using the embossing folder.  Ink the edge all the way around using either Bashful blue or Marina Mist depending on the look you want.
Cut a piece of the ribbon just a little bit bigger then the size of the white card and apply using glue ( the Snail adhesive works great for this) and wrap the ends of the ribbon under the card. Glue to the Bashful blue card.
Stamp your snowflake using Marina Mist, I used the new foam ink pad and then wet embossed using Clear embossing powder. Cut out using the scallop punch.  Cut out the larger circle, ink edges, apply the scallop piece using Stampin Dimensionals, to the large circle. Stamp greeting and apply to corner.
Hope you enjoy this one, I love how it turned out and how simple it is. Have a great weekend.
