I love Smoky Slate and have done since it became one of the new collection colours last year! It adds subtle images when stamped and a bit of class when using the cardstock! I adore it!

But how to make it the feature of a card? Well I decided to go for embossing and inking!!!

I used a Sheena Douglass embossing folder and inked the embossed panel with Smoky Slate! I added some gilding wax (pearl moon) to the snowflakes to give them a sheen but other than than it was all the fab Smoky Slate built up layer after layer to create the winter scene. I mounted it onto Basic Grey to give it a darker mount, and then stamped the sentiment straight into the card. Simple, but effective!

Happy crafting!
