Okay I have to admit I LOVE the new in colors. Have never been drawn to the bold colors, but these colors are so rich. This card is a "Linda Orginial", I know I am the Queen of Copying, but do get creative now and again. I used the Clear Scallop Square Die with the Big Shot. The clear dies are the best for those scrapbookers outt there as you can see where you are die cutting, so they are wonderful for cropping your pictures. I used the shimmering paint for the snowflakes in the background, and also on the ornament. I applied the paint directly to the snowflake stamp, but for the ornament I did the rock-n-roll technique with Melon Mambo Ink and then rolled the edges of the stamp in Rich Razzleberry Ink, and finally with a dauber, daubbed the edges to get the shimmery look.
