Frosty Midwinter

This card depicts a frosty winter's night scene, with a lovely frosty leaf 3D embellishment.  The main focal panel is dark cardstock with a group of trees that has been stamped and heat embossed in a silvery blue powder.   The background paper is a paler shade than the panel.  Leaves have been randomly stamped in a darker contrasting ink, then trimmed to create a frame around the main panel.  The leaf embellishment is stamped using a solid silhouette image.  Using the same dark card as for the main panel, the leaf is stamped  with a clear embossing ink,  using plenty of ink.  Then  two or three different colours of embossing powder are sprinkled over the stamped image, taking care to keep the different colours to different areas of the image.  This is called multi embossing.  The image is heated to emboss and set it, the leaf is cut  out. The leaf is attached with dimensional glue or foam pads.
