Christmas Card Club 3: Endless Wishes Christmas Card

Just wanted to share my favorite card from our Christmas Card Club 3 class this weekend (that's 3 of 5 card classes I'm offering this season). This card was made with the NEW Endless Wishes Photopolymer stamp set. You get NINETEEN STAMPS in this set, and there are so many variations you can create with the greetings...which is why they called it Endless Wishes! [Note: this is a very popular new stamp set, so if you click that link above and you are not taken to the product page, the item is out of stock...please check back on or about November 6th.]

Instructions:
1) Cut Marina Mist card stock to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", then score to create 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card with fold on left.
2) Cut Whisper White card stock to 4" x 5-1/4".
3) Mount the following stamp images together on Clear Block C in orientation as shown on card: "very merry", "Christmas", "Wishes", "to you".
4) Ink up this combined stamp saying image in Marina Mist and stamp on Whisper White where shown. (this image gets stamped first, to ensure you leave enough room for it when stamping snowflakes)
5) Tap Embossing Buddy over stamped image, or dry ink with Stampin' Up! Heat Tool on setting 1 (to ensure no embossing powder sticks to it in later steps)
6) Ink largest snowflake image in VersaMark or White Craft ink and stamp multiple images on card as shown. Only stamp the large snowflake for this step. Stamp all large snowflakes onto card front before proceeding to next step.
7) Cover the large snowflake stamped images with embossing powder and shake off excess. Only the snowflake images should remain covered with powder. Brush off any excess powder that is NOT on a snowflake.
8) Holding the card carefully, so as not to wipe off any of the remaining embossing powder, melt the embossing powder on all the snowflakes, using the Stampin' Up! Heat Tool at setting 2. (careful...don't burn your fingers!)
9) After a few seconds, when the melted embossing powder has cooled, sponge over each of the embossed snowflakes in Marina Mist, using a Sponge Dauber. Sponge from the center of the snowflake, out to each end, always starting back in the center of the snowflake after adding more ink to the dauber. This keeps the darkest of the ink in the center of the snowflake.
10) Stamp the small snowflake in Marina Mist, where there is space between the large sponged snowflakes.
11) Wrap about 36" of Island Indigo Baker's Twine around the bottom of the Whisper White layer, and tie in a bow at front lower left, as shown.
12) Adhere the Whisper White layer to the front of the Marina Mist card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
13) Stamp some small snowflakes in Marina Mist, onto a coordinating Whisper White Medium Envelope.
14) Address your envelope, affix appropriate postage, and mail your card!
