Take another piece of whisper white, stamp the snowflake and sentiment with Versamark then use clear embossing folder to heat emboss, then use a sponge dauber to sponge on color of your choice- here tempting turquoise but melon mambo or other bold colors work well for contrast. I tied it off with white taffeta ribbon and layered it with turquoise CS but any color ink and cardstock works.

This was a really simple Santa Suit idea I cased from Louise Del Vecchio from Stampin Connections, a demo only site. Super simple and so much fun. Take a base Real Red cardstock. Stamp Believe from Snowflake Serenade with versamark and emboss with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to add a subtle sentiment with just the right amount of sparkle. Punch 2 scallop circles (1 1/4 inch in the holiday catalogue) with whisper white CS and mount with dimensionals. Someone suggested cotton balls but I think a powder puff or pom pom would also work well here. For the belt I took a 7/8 inch square punch (not SU- but 1" square works too) using Brushed Gold CS then I used Curly Label punch to make the buckle. I used a 7/8 inch strip of basic black card stock and just laid the Gold buckle on top.

I used the diecut itself to make the frame. Took a piece of real red CS same width as the diecut then traced the top and bottom with a pencil to cut it out then flipped it over to make sure the pencil mark did not show before I layered it. The straight edge sides made it easy.

I thought pretty cool Lynda!
Funny thing is that later on I was perusing Stamping connections (online site for Demos only) I found a card fromTamara Bertram that looks almost like my card. It seems that Tamara
Iridescent Ice is so much prettier in person......
