Double Embossing for Timeless Tuesday

In addition to Flowers and Teddy Bears, another thing I seem to love to use in cards are Snowmen. Mona at Flourishes  Timeless Tuesday Challenge ask us to create a card using the Double Embossing technique.  I used Nesties Oval die and CB Snowflakes EF on White CS to emboss my surface leaving a clean space for stamping.  I created my card with Flourishes "Warm Winter Wishes" Snowman stamped with Memento London Fog ink rather than Black ink.  This gave a much softer image to color in Copics. Added some  Frosted Lace Stickles, buttons, black glaze to the eyes and mouth, and red glaze to berries. Rounded corners with EK Success punch. Stamped Sentiment and snowflakes ( from same set as snowman) in SU Blue ink and cut with Spellbinders Fancy Tag die.
Card stock from stash.

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

Great idea to use the London Fog ink rather than black. It's a much better look for the snowman! Great card!

LOVE your snowman and your stamping/coloring of him. He certainly does have a softer look. It's a beautiful card!
