All Is Calm, All Is Bright

After making a prototype of this card, I changed a few things and made a batch of 20 of them. I gifted 10 to a friend and I used 10 of them with my own stash of cards.
Using white cardstock, I stamped the tree image with Versamark and added a type of embossing powder that gives a rough texture. To achieve maximum texture, I used the heat tool on the back of the card first. Next, the snowflake images and sentiment were stamped using Versamark ink and heat embossed using a silver pearl powder.
The inside of the card was decorated with a die cut scalloped oval from white glitter paper and a plain oval that had been heat embossed with a sentiment using the silver pearl powder. The bow on the top of the tree was die cut from white glitter paper as well. The card front was backed with foam tape and adhered to the white card base.
