I used a new snowflake embossing folder from Carta Bella that I recently picked up, and since I've been following along with the Embossing Folder Fun class by Amy Kunkle over at Big Picture Classes I thought it would coordinate wonderfully with the Hot Cocoa theme! For the front of my card I glued on the heart border and the snowflake circles before running the card front through the embossing folder. This was a good tip from Amy to create 'embedded embossing'. After I embossed I splattered on some Dylusions Spray Mist for a little inky detail.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are staying warm and enjoying your weekend!
Inside, I debossed the snowflakes again, using the 'backside' of the embossing folder. I only partially embossed my cardstock, leaving the center opening plain and embossing each end. I added a strip of washi tape at the point where the embossing folder ended. I stamped inside with a sentiment from the Pretty Cute Stamps set Sip Enjoy Relax and used some of the hearts from the negative of my diecut border to add a punch of red to my card by colouring them with a marker.
