Clear Snowflake Card

I finally made a card with a transparency. I didn't have any white Stazon so I tried my white craft ink. I have no idea if it will ever dry but I stamped it and left in on my stamping desk. I guess I'll check it tomorrow when I get home from work to see if it is dry.

The night of navy mini card is just that, a mini card. When you open the transp. card it says Holiday Greetings, which I stamped in silver. I also embossed the white cs with the navy snowflake stamped on it. I used Versamark to cover the entire white sheet and then embossed it with the glitter embossing powder (you can't really see it too well in the first picture so I added the second one where it shows up a littler better). Then I tied the navy organdy around the bottom of the white cs. I attached the white cs to the silver cs with those cute little diamond shaped silver brads. I bought them a while back because I just had to have them but I never used them because I didn't want to use them up. Isn't that silly? I even do that with my designer paper because I don't want to mess it up! I have been doing a little better using all my patterned paper.
If the craft ink doesn't dry I will be getting the white stazon because I'll be making some of these to send out at Christmas cards. I am just thrilled with the way they turned out. I am a teacher and I have a huge box of overhead transparencies that I bought to keep at home to write on when I do my lesson plans. They have been sitting in the craft room gathering dust so I have found a new use for them.
I have been trying to come up with some cute ornaments that I can add to my Christmas presents too. I have been looking at my new Papercrafts magazine and they have some cute things in there. I have also been thinking about trying to make some of those paper stars that have shown up on SCS here lately. I should have ordered some of those microscope slides to make ornaments with but I didn't. I may have to buy some dominos after I get paid this week and try to make some of those. That would be something new for me too! I'll post whatever I make here so you can give me some feedback!

I just love your clear snowflake card. You are very talented. Wish that I lived closer to Alabama, so that I could attend your classes.
