Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #143

It's time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenge over at Flourishes!  This week Mona has selected the Double Embossing technique and the tutorial by Beate can be found here.  This technique embosses the outside of a die and leaves the inside smooth so you can stamp there.  Fun!

I made a little frame for my stamped image so it would stand out better.  The mistletoe is colored with Copics and I was amazed at how well they blended on the SEI paper.  For the background I heat embossed the snowflakes by brayering white craft ink on it and sprinkling a combo of white and Dazzling Diamonds embossing powders over it.  Gives it a nice shimmer with a touch of white.
If you post your card on SCS be sure to use the code FTTC143.
