I wanted to make a couple of winter cards and decided to re-use some backgrounds I made earlier. I stamped on two word images and embossed with black Distress embossing powder. I don't think I shook the jar enough before pouring. To see how it should be done, watch Tim's video of him using the Distress Embossing Powder. I held the heat tool very close to the card, this slightly "burnt" the clear embossing that was already on the background, giving it a nice distressed/aged appearance.
I inked some paper and a small tag with antique linen Distress ink. I did a better job of shaking the jar of black Distress Embossing powder on the tag.
I ran an image on a transparency sheet through my Xyron sticker maker and attached it to the background. Attached the tag with a snowflake embellishment. Layered the background on to the colored card stock and then on to a blue card.
The inside of the card says "Nothing warms my Heart like thoughts of You."
