Let It Snow two ways

Hello! Diana here today.  Did you have a white Christmas? Ours was just a bit damp but no snow. Oh, well, I can still bring on the snowflakes in the craft room though! I made two cards with this Let it snow stamp from Quietfire Design. On the first one, I used clear embossing powder on plain white card stock and sponged in different blues: Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, and Salty Ocean distress inks. I then used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to trim it out as well as make a matting for my white card base. I added some snowflakes using Impression Obsession Small Snowflake Set and popped up my sentiment with some large foam tabs.

For my second take, I clear embossed on watercolor paper and instead of distress inks, I used Ultramarine Blue color burst. The card is brighter but the "let it snow" did not pop up as much so I colored it in with a white gel pen. Which do you like better?

Thanks for stopping by!!!   Until next time...
