This card uses the Winter Wonder stamp set with a classy winter color scheme: White, soft sky, blue bayou and black.
The main image is stamped in Versamark and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. After that, I sponged Soft Sky all around it and added the "Winter Wonderland" sentiment. This, of course, was all done on a Whisper White giga scalloped square punch out. I layered it on blue bayou and black, then dotted with a white glaze pen.
The blue bayou background is stamped in cloud white Versamagic, then covered in Iridescent Ice EP. You have to work fairly quickly if you want to emboss this ink, since it is a chalk ink, not a full fledged pigment ink. I did mine in three steps, rather than stamping it all, then embossing. The other background (Soft Sky), was dry embossed with the Cuttlebug D'Vine embossing folder.
