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 Medium Berry 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 Berry 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 Constellation Jade Riccio Card Stock used for the snowflake. A perfect reflection of snow, the Constellation Jade paper has an embossed coating in the paper which gives it the sparkling swirl look. With a pocket for a gift card, this Snowflake Card is a perfect gift for the holidays.
