Good Monday Morning and welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.  Today's idea is to make a card using the resist technique.

Close up of image.

On a sheet of smooth white card stock stamp the sentiment with Versafine ink and heat emboss gold embossing powder over it.  Stamp a solid stamp (Angel by Inkadinkado) with Versafine ink and heat emboss clear embossing powder.  Brayer color of your choice(I used distress ink, broken china) over the entire image and sentiment.  When you're satisfied with the color, use a paper towel to wipe the image and sentiment to remove any color.  I used a spellbinders die to cut the image and a gold layer for mounting.  I used a textured white card 6x6.  The center panel I embossed using a Sizzix snowflake embossing folder.  I used deckled edge scissors to cut the edges and a Krylon gold pen on the edge.  I added gold dew drops and smaller gold beads to the snowflakes, which is a Martha Stewart punch.  An organdy bow finishes it off.

This is a fun technique, hope you have a chance to try it.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you're not stressing out about the holidays.  It's kinda like a wedding, takes so long to get ready and it's over in one day!!!!  And no matter what happens, it always turns out OK.

Until later................
