Best Friends Embossed

Today's card is another Tim Holtz inspiration.  I love this technique of embossing clear plastic.  Again, I used a piece of laminating film, but could just as well have used some recycled packaging. I embossed it with my Cuttlebug and the Snowflakes Embossing folder.
The image is from QKR Stampede and is titled Best Friends (#23502) I stamped it onto white card stock and colored it with water color crayons.  I used Icicle Stickles to give the snowman some nice sparkle.  I love the Icicle Stickles, depending on the light and angle, they show up different colors.  Sometimes blue, sometimes purple or pink.
I layered the image onto a piece of scrap pink paper from my scrap stash, then attached the embossed laminating film to it with pink brads.

This was then adhered to a blue card base with ATG Tape.  I love the look of the embossed snowflakes over the image!  What do you think?  Leave me a comment and let me know. 

Thanks for stopping by today to see my card.  I hope you enjoyed it.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Wow! that's a new technique for me to try. I have saved almost all my clear packaging from my carts so I have quite a supply. I'm definitely going to give this a try.
Your card is adorable. I love the embossing over the image.
