Non-Traditional Christmas

Meet today's card.
Playing around with inking an embossing folder again to create a quick and easy card.
You can see some of the other cards I made using this technique here and here.

I just love the look of this EB folder from Carabelle and decided to make a card using it.
I inked the inside of the folder with Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink, sprayed with water and pressed onto my paper.  Be sure and let the inks dry or use you heat tool as they take a bit longer to dry and will smear.
When dry, I placed the piece inside my Misti and stamped the sentiment with black ink.
Next I punched out a circle then stamped the snowflake onto it using the same DOX ink.
I added a Nuvo drop to the center of the snowflake then pop dot mounted it to the side of my card front.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
