Dawn's challenge for the TLC was to use dry debossing. Well, I don't do much of that except for the negative Cuttlebug effect, but I thought I could make a simple Christmas card quite effectively.
5 1/2" square card, base is Bazzill Bling.
I cut the snowflake twice from chipboard and glued the layers together. Then I used this to deboss a square of Bazzill Bling. I then stamped the square with Canvas using Versamark, and brushed with gold Perfect Pearls. Edges are highlighted with a gold Krylon leafing pen. It's popped up on foam dots on a fleur de lis square. I wanted to highlight the square a bit, as I was using the same Bazzill Bling for the base, so I cut another fleur de lis square from gold card, and popped the Bazzill layer up on foam. The gold layer is attached directly to the card base. I added a tiny gem in the centre of the flake as it seemed to need something.

Very pretty! I like the snowflake done with the dry debossed technique. For my card I didn't use a brayer. I just keep rubbing the ink pad over my debossing till it was the way i wanted it and then let it dry for a few minutes, hope that helps!
