Day 2- IO Sneak Peeks

Welcome to day two of the Impression Obsession sneak peeks. I am not sure that my picture shows some of the sparkle I added to the card, so I added a close-up picture:


Instead of using plain white embossing powder, I mixed some white ep (which really makes the snowflakes pop) with some Iridescent Sparkle ep (which makes the snowflakes sparkle). I also added a ton of rhinestones to the flakes as extra bling.

The snowflake (C10003) is another design by Hannah Davies, and the saying is once again from the All I Want for Christmas clear set (CL304). Isn't that a practical set?


Are you too anxious to see more? How about a link to the new Impression Obsession catalog with all the new images? You can find it here.

Oh, oh, oh!! Your card is just lovely. Made me think of the Christmas cards I made back in '98 to honor my beloved Grandma. Of course, I didn't add the sparkle to the white EP or have any rhinestones way back then, both of which class this up a ton. Thanks for sharing, as I got all misty eyed with my fond memories.
