Awhile back Dawn from WPlus9 had a video using snowflakes and heat embossing - and I thought it was such a cool look.  So did a CASE of her card.

I stamped a variety of HA snowflake stamps with Versafine ink on navy cardstock and heat embossed them with HA silver embossing powder.  Then I sprinkled more embossing powder around and heat embossed starting on the back so the powder didn't blow all over the place!!  Trimmed my panel down to 4x5.25 and added to a soft gray card base.  Added the silver sentiment and some blue sequins and done.  Trying to capture all the shine in the photo was difficult, but you get the idea I'm sure.
As a side note - if you are in the market for an embossing gun, this one from Hero Arts is worth every penny - I have had mine for over twenty years and it still works like a charm!!
A new challenge starts tomorrow at A Blog Named Hero so be sure to check it out. 
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. So gorgeous and dazzling!! That White Christmas feeling really comes thru!!

  2. Betty, I bet this looks glittery and lush IRL. SO pretty with the rich blue and sliver.

  3. Pretty card...but I'm so done with Christmas and winter scenes! Agree with the Wagner heat tool...had mine forever! Glad they're still around

  4. I'm into making birthday cards and other types than winter and Christmas. I love the look of your card, however and when I get back into Christmas, I'll need to check it out again. I totally agree with you about the Wagner heat tool! I haven't had it too long but it is a great product.

  5. My gun gave up the ghost a few years ago, but it did last me over 15 years & it was definitely the best! I totally adore your card, Betty--gotta case you now!

  6. WOW! This is a really beautiful card, Betty! I definitely want to check out this technique...your sparkly snowflakes are so pretty and I love how everything sparkles on this card!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments - they make my day!
