In the meantime, I've become addicted to that Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter by Sparkle N Sprinkle, and cannot stop playing with it. Those who know me can attest that my "fumble fingers" find coloring difficult. But stamping and shading are so enjoyable on this glitter. You'll likely be tired of seeing how much I use this technique. My favorite way of coloring on this glitter is with a Dove Blender pen and watercolor crayons because they are so forgiving and extremely easy to blend. This card only has a slight dab of color.

The die cuts were cut from white cardstock, coated with VersaMark ink, and heat set with Sparkle N Sprinkle's glistening Cosmic Ice Rink embossing powder (EP408).
The snow flake on the top right has been cut through to the center, so that part of it is behind the white layer, and part is in front, to create visual interest and depth.
The velvet glitter is applied with Super Adhesive Sheets (double sided hi-tac adhesive). Burnishing the velvet glitter onto the adhesive enlivens the glistening power.
