My card today features the Snowflake die! These dies come attached to each and before they get separated I decided to try embossing with them! I used a tan mat available from Sizzix and ran the snowflakes through my die cutting machine on some watercolor card stock.

Next, I used my Spectrum Noir Aqua marker and added some ink to a pallete, with water I added the red ink over the all the snowflakes I embossed. I think this helps the embossed snowflakes stand out a bit.

Then I found some red card stock that matched and cut some snowflakes with it. I trimmed the snowflake panel down and tied some twine around it, then added it to a white card base.

With brown ink, I stamped Warm Your Heart sentiment. I first stamped it in a light Kraft colored ink, then again with a darker brown ink, this gives a nice halo look to the sentiment! Last I added the red snowflakes randomly on the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you will play along with us at the AI Challenge!!
