Embossed Snowflakes

 
 
I had fun playing with the Snowflakes stamp set along with my embossing powders yesterday, during the little dude's nap-time.
 
I stamped the larger snowflake images first in Versamark ink, then used White Daisy embossing powder mixed with Prisma glitter, and heat set them.
The picture just doesn't pick up the shimmer on the white snowflakes.
 
Then on the largest white snowflakes, I inked up the outline stamp in Chocolate ink and stamped, lining up the images just so.
 
Then I stamped the smaller snowflakes in Versamark ink, and used a retired Crystal Blue embossing powder, and heat set them.
I thought the Crystal Blue would be darker, but it looks quite a bit lighter (more like Sky) on the Kraft cardstock.  Still looks pretty tho... ;)
 
I added a 1" strip of Chocolate cardstock, and White embossed the sentiment as well.
 
 
Happy creating!  :)

That crystal blue embossing powder is gorgeous against the kraft and white.
