Christmas Snow Globe Easel Card

 I'm excited to share the first of a couple of Christmas projects I have been working on.  I made this easel card with Treat Cups and Mica Flakesfrom the Holiday Mini.  I overlayed the Marina Mist mat with vellum that had been stamped with Serene Snowflakes in VersaMark and then heat embossed with Irridescent Ice emboss powder.  The vellum and the embossing powder add a beautiful and sheer sparkle to the whole card. 

I've decided to hop  Hand Stamped Sentiments and enter this card into this week's challenge.  This week's challenge,  HSS Theme Challenge #92 is "Over the Top"!!  Head on over to check out the other entries.
