Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow

My tummy feels funny and that prompts me to go to you-know-where very often.  I am finally feeling better and getting back to catch up with making Christmas cards.

I created a Z-fold card with Kraft cardstock, stamped snowflakes on the entire card (really love the snowflakes from Frosted Cardmaking Workshop on the Go), then stamped and colored the snowman:

I matted the circle on a piece of Sky cardstock, and made a banner in the same color.  When the card is close, it looks like the banner is in one piece.  When the Z fold is opened, we can see that the banner is a continuous strip with "let it snow"  stamped all throughout.

One thing I keep wondering is whether White pigment ink will become completely dry.  I have the habit of rubbing over it (and also glitter surface) to make sure things do not rub off.  After heat setting it and letting it dry overnight, my fingers still show white after rubbing it.  You have any trick to prevent the white from rubbing off?

My card is entering the following challenges:
Divas by Design Challenge - Something Snowy
Papertake Weekly - Snow and Ice
C is 4 Challenge - Winter is coming
The Glory of Christmas Challenge - Special Card Form
