Showcase: Holiday Snowflake Card

Embossing dies are a great way to emphasize the beauty of a paper and Gloria Stengel has taken embossing a step further, with this card, to bring out the dimensional look. The Cardinal Red Card Stock has been lightly inked with a white Chalk Alabaster on the raised design in order to bring out that extra dimension. The subtle ink on the Cardinal Red Card Stock is just enough to highlight the design while still showing the rich color beneath. Another great feature of this card is the Petallics Silver Ore Card Stock used for the snowflake. A perfect reflection of snow, the Petallics Silver Ore Card Stock has a metallic coating that gives it the sparkling look of real fresh snow. With a pocket for a gift card, this Snowflake Card is a perfect gift for the holidays.
