Flocking Fun

Yes, it's another Christmas card.  I used the Mojo Janette sketch because it's different but also uncomplicated.  It also worked really well with my fav Christmas stamp set Snow Swirled.  The snow flakes on the tree are spotlighted using Real Red ink, 1/4" and 1/2" circle punches.  The big snow flake is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and flocked in a muted gray.  I don't know if you can see it in the picture but you can in real life.  You can't help yourself, it must be touched. This was my first time flocking and I used the Heat and Stick powder.  Can you add multiple layers of the powder to make it stickier?  I'd like to get the flocking thicker and fuzzier so if you have any helpful hints I'd love to hear them.
I didn't bother with a sentiment or greeting since it would muddle up the card that already displays the tell-tale snow flakes and tree of the season.

Thanks for dropping by and taking a look.  Hope you are having a FABULOUS Tuesday!
