A versatile holiday card With lovely snowflakes

As I'm looking at my collection of Christmas cards that I've lined up to post here, I've reaffirmed my conclusion that I'm addicted to snow flake stamps.  And, I especially love the set I used on this card.  I have a few more to post, so you'll keep seeing these images coming up over the next couple of weeks.  The thing that is really neat about the versatility of stamps and card making is that each card definitely looks different.  If you stood them up side by side, you would likely see that the images are the same, but unless you were looking for it, each one would look different to you.  Isn't that great!?!  That means that my snowflakes never grow old!

This card is really easy to make; there are no special techniques used. But, it does have some nice little extras that make it stand out as a step above an ordinary card.  The edges of the Very Vanilla pieces were sponged with Not Quite Navy ink to soften them.  The top edge of the Season's Greetings mat was punched with the Scallop Edge border punch and then a hole was pierced in the center of each scallop to add just a teeny bit something more.  And finally, the layered snowflake with a pearl center adds the final touch that makes this card a winner.
