I got to stamp again today!

I do enjoy stamping and I took the opportunity this morning to make this little card. I used images from Treehouse stamps to create this frosty looking card. I stamped the tree image several times, using versamark, vanilla craft ink and then making sure those were dry before stamping once more with versamark and embossing with white. I sponged around the edges with versamark and white craft and then used more embossing powder for that frosty window pane look. I love how that turns out. I mounted that onto night of navy cs. The sentiment was stamped with ballet blue ink, as were the snowflakes on that layer. I mounted it onto more night of navy cs and the bottom scallop was embossed with my cuttlebug, then I cut around the scallops. Crazy, I know, but it was worth it. It wasn't very difficult. The largest blue layer was stamped minimally with the same snowflake and embossed with white ep. The whole thing is mounted onto a white card base. Now this will be an easy mail card, but I think it looks pretty good. What do you think?
