Artful Inkables Peaceful Wishes

It is 17 degrees here in Bama and tomorrow we will have snow! Not a lot of snow, just enough to put a smile on our faces! As you know, we do not get much snow here, but when we do, it's a fun thing...Probably because we are never snowed in. At any rate this is unseasonably cold for us. I wonder how the people up north deal with so much snow. I admire you for it!

These cards I did for a swap back in December, when I played for Artful Inkables. The stamps are absolutely perfect for heat embossing...imagine all the colors you could use with these images. Just elegant and simple.

I used Gold Cardstock, White Cardstock, Spellbinders Snowflake Nestabilities, Versamark ink, Gold Embossing Powder, Gold Ribbon, and Rhinestones. Super simple! I hope you like it.

Gorgeous card Velta! I love the simplicity of it and the gold heat embossing. It makes a statement on its own. We are having cold weather, but no snow here in the valley. We have to deal with the heat, so this is a welcomed change.

Hugz, xx
