Building a Snowman + Fake Frantage

 TIP : Here's a Card and a little Tag I made for Christmas the tag was a pre cut die that I sanded down stamps then embossed with clear then added a little of the Aged Gold to try that effect I've been seeing around (mock/fake frantage) You can aquire a look that is close with using powders you have on hand it's just your going to use a lot less this way seeing you sprinkle it on very little
** if your using paper then heat it from underneath so the embossing powder doesn't get pushed together with the force of the heat **
