Winter Wonderland

I have had several wonderful comments on this particular card, so I thought I would post it here and give the "deets."
I did a reverse mask technique on the card front. All that entails is creating a "hole" (what ever shape you would like) in a piece of thin paper and laying that over your card front. I stamped the tree in Artichoke Classic ink from Lovely as a Tree three times without reinking. And then, before removing the mask, I sponged Artichoke around the edges. Now I removed the mask and reinked the Same tree in Artichoke and took my Chocolate Chip Maker and colored in the stem. Stamp the tree over the masked image. Stamp your sentiment greeting. Now...for the fun part! I took my Two Way Glue Pen and drew in "glue lines" where I wanted the "snow" to be. Next, I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the glue and tapped off the excess glitter. I sat it aside to give the glue a few minutes to dry and then finished assembling the card.

I looooove the look of Dazzling Diamonds on cards, it adds just the right amount of "bling" to your cards!

Regina, where'd you use the mat pack and piercer?

I used it to line up the holes and pierce the holes for the brads.
