Embossed Snowflake - Technostamper 237

What a beautiful day today! Temperatures in the high 20's, a slight breeze, and no humidity.  It's almost a sacrilige to be making Christmas cards, but I need to keep making them.  My next major Craft show is in less then 2 weeks away.
For this Christmas card I used the sketch challenge with Technostamper here

 

Technique:   
For some reason, when I saw this sketch I envisioned something in gold and blue, so those are the colors I used in the card.
The base is Midnight Meuse, followed by a layer of Whisper White which is embossed with the Lacy Brocade folder.  Next I made a half triangle to place on the left side of the card, again using Midnight Meuse, but this time I embossed it with the Square Lattice folder.  I also punched out a scallop border in Champagne glitter paper to attach to the edge of this triangle. The corners of this triangle were rounded with a corner rounder punch.

After stamping with Versa Mark on Whisper White card stock die cut with a 3 1/2" circle die, I applied embossing powder that was a mixture of 2 colors - gold and iridescent ice.  The picture doesn't do it justice, but the snowflake actually glitters. Some tiny pearls were attached to the outside edges of the snowflake.  On top of this embossed snowflake I mounted a small Champagne glitter snowflake using a dimensional.  A large pearl was placed on top of that.
Paper piercing was done around the periphery of the circle, after which it was mounted on a slightly larger circle of Champagne glitter.
This unit was attached to the card with dimensionals.
