Elegant Christmas

The colors at Dynamic Duos this week are just perfect for an elegant Christmas card!
I had some leftover Silver Glimmer Paper with the negative "merry" from last Friday's Stamp Camp, and it worked perfect with this sketch from retro sketches:
I started by stamping my card base with the the now sold out Endless Wishes. I love this set and I'm so glad I got my hands on it in time!  For my background I stamped the snowflakes first in Black StazOn ink and then Silver Encore ink.
My StazOn ink pad is getting kind of dry, but I liked the way it wasn't quite full strength.  The "Christmas" is stamped on Vellum Cardstock and adhered at the top behind the "Merry." The smallest snowflakes are stamped in Silver Encore ink and then punched out with the 3/4" Circle Punch. I put a dot of Tombow multi glue in the center of each one to adhere them down and then put a rhinestone in each center for some additional bling.

Stamp Sets: Endless Wishes, More Merry Messages
Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Silver Glimmer, Vellum 
Ink: Basic Black, Black StazOn, Silver Encore
Tools: Expressions Framelits, 3/4" Circle Punch
Accessories: Rhinestones
