Silver and Gold Snowflake Christmas Card

I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's blog today to try something new!!  This fun technique gives your dies all new possibilities, by using them to emboss with.  I started by using my Big Kick to emboss the dies onto my Kraft cardstock, using the silicone mat to get an impression, rather than cutting.  It was a bit of a learning curve to get the right depth.  I don't have a magnetic plate, so getting the ink on without smudging it was a bit of a problem. I think I will have to bump up that plate on my wishlist.... a letter to Santa perhaps?  Then I went ahead and cut out snowflakes in vellum and glitter paper... added some direct to paper white pigment ink... and some sequins and voila!
