Absolutely my most favourite thing to do.. embossing! I used Tim Holtz snowman and then went for the faux embossing on the rest of the card. Frosty is coloured with re-inkers and water. I like how the old SU black turns purple..it's a nice bold colour. The snowflake is from Impression Obsession (my new favourite) and I used some of the negative pieces to make the small snowflakes. Torn paper makes the snow banks at his feet. The basic card came with an embossed border already on it...bonus! Of course I glittered it to death because after all..it is snow!

This is a fantastic card, Sue! I've never seen colored dry embossing before (I know, I'm still kind of new to this) and you've done it expertly! Love the expression on his face! And I love how you made the snow drifts, too - very clever!
