I created my own little sparkly blizzard using some embossing paste, stencil and microfine glitter. I added the new Dashing through the Snow sentiment and colored in the "snow" letters using Copics R46 and R43. I also topped the letters off with a little more sparkly dimension using a Viva Holographic Glitter Liner.

Sweet and simple on the inside! Whenever I create card bases using dies with a more fragile edge I always use heavyweight paper. In this case it's Bazzill's Peppermint Heavyweight, a great Christmas red!
