Newton's Nook: Beautiful Blizzard

Welcome to Day #2 of the November Releases from
Today we have the "Beautiful Blizzard" Stamp Set

Here is my sample card: 

I stamped the various snowflakes onto the greyish blue paper with Electric Purple
Neon Pigment Ink by Tsukineko.  Before the ink dried (it's very creamy, so it
takes a few minutes to dry without a heat gun) I sprinkled on some iridescent glitter.
I also went back with a glue pen and highlighted some of the areas of the
snowflakes and sprinkled on extra glitter.
The centers were adorned with glittery Sprinkles enamel dots by Doodlebug Design.

To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.
