Debossed Snowflake Card


This is a fun, simple masculine card I tried. I used the Cuttlebug Snow Dots embossing folder. I brayered Chocolate ink on the side with the raised snowflakes. Then I ran it through my Wizard to emboss the light blue. Instead of using the usual raised embossed snowflakes, I used the inked snowflakes that are debossed.  I thought the brown snowflakes would make a good masculine card.



I stamped the snowflake with Twilight ink on the metal rimmed tag, also more masculine. Then I added tiny blue sparkles and some Glitz Glitter Gel. The card also has sparkle flourishes and a sparkle to go inside the "O." You can see the details in the close-up.

 
The snowflake is a long retired CTMH stamp. The sentiment comes from Our Daily Bread Designs words in the Sweet William set.  I used one of my favorite CTMH Christmas sentiments inside:

C.R.A.F.T. #229 - Christmas

Clever clever card! I love this, it is masculine but it has texture and embellishment and it works beautifully. It really looks good and I love the idea of using the debossing with the ink. The snowflake also looks grand with the embossing and sparkle. Men like a little sparkle and shine too and this fits the bill. Thank you so much for finding our Opus Gluei theme and playing along with us! Hope you return for future fun!
