This card hasn't photographed as well as I had wished but is a lovely card. I used the round tab punch to cut a 2" circle to make the Christmas ball in the middle of the card, and its is stamped and covered in dazzling diamonds. The background is also stamped, with the soft sky and blue bayou then dazzling diamonds applied to a number of snow bursts. Seasons Greetings is clear embossed, using versa mark, real red ink then clear EB powder applied and heated.

Thank you for looking and Happy Stamping.
