Now on with today's projects...

I made this card using pewter embossing powder and an embossing folder. It's a simple technique that leaves beautiful metal like results.

1. In raised area of embossing folder.

2. Run your cardstock through your embossing machine
3. Pour embossing powder over your embossed cardstock
4. Use a small, clean and soft paint brush, brush off any unwanted embossing powder
5. Warm up your heat gun for at least 10 seconds before turning it towards your embossing and then heat up your embossing powder until it melts. Leave on the heat a few extra seconds to give it the uneven metal look

Here is a close up of the area I did. I used colored mist spray to color the snowflakes. I put used cardstock over each area I didn't want spritzed. 

Thanks for stopping by today and since I'm at the end, you need to backtrack and see the other great projects so please start at Theresa's blog here.
