New Technique

I like to try new things every now and then, this card was the result of that. I think it turned out alright. Pretty good, for the first try, I guess. I'm not sure what this method is called~I got the idea from my mother in law while looking through her stash of past cards she had made (in bulk, I believe). The front:
The red and blue (dotted and solid red) paper was a double sided piece I had. In the future I would use a thicker piece. I added the black, it is by Amanda Blu. I'm not sure the brand of the double sided paper. The 'Merry Christmas' is written with my new Versa Marker (a wonderful, wonderful tool) and blue Distress Embossing powder. I got the VersaMarker from 1-2-3 Stitch for just over $5 (that included shipping and handling). I received it two days after it was ordered. I will definitely order from them in the future. I encourage you to check out their site, as their prices seem to be much lower than anywhere else (at least the items I was looking at). Image while opening:
Opened card. Fun, isn't it?! The image is from the wonderful Linnie of Whoopsi Daisy. She is simply darling!
The snowflakes on the bottom are a punch, it didn't have a brand on it~sorry!
