Textured Snowflake

Happy Saturday!

I bought the Tim Holtz embossing folder this year and wanted to see what it would look like if I inked it up.  So, I inked it up with Memento red ink and ran it through my Cuttlebug to transfer the ink.
There were a few places that I touched up with more of the red ink but I love the design it left behind.
Then....what to do with the inked piece?

Well, I had a negative snowflake piece on my desk and decided to see what it would look like over the embossed, inked piece.  The red showed through beautifully and my card was born.
Cut out the card front using a stitched die and stamped the sentiment from Kaisercraft then added a red pearl in the center.  
The red and white is so festive I think.

Adding my card to these challenges:

What a beautiful way of using a negative. I have to try and remember to make my dies in the middle of a larger piece so that I can get another design using the negative in such a way as you did. This is gorgeous!
