If you want all-over sparkle, the Dazzling Diamond Dust Technique is for you!
Stamp and color your image (here, I stamped the stockings from A Cute Christmas in Basic Gray and colored them in with markers). Punch it out. Take a VersaMark pad to the entire colored image, making sure to get ink on every part of the card stock. Pour on Irridescent Ice embossing powder, tap off excess and heat. It's that simple!
This card also uses A Candy Cane Christmas dsp layered on Garden Green card stock with a knot of 1/8" Real Red taffeta ribbon. The card is Baja Breeze. This idea was inspired by Ilina Crouse.
