Faux embossing can be easily achieved by using the same colors of paper and then it can be stepped up by adding a little shine using glitter. Peg created this winter scene by covering a piece of card stock in glitter and then layered snowflakes over the top to give the embossed effect. This technique can be used to add extra touches to your projects and is one of Peg's favorite techniques.

Peg began by coloring in the image she was using and then adding glitter to some of the areas to add some winter glisten to it.
Next, she placed a piece of 7" x 5" white card stock through a Xyron.
After removing the backing sheet, she lightly sprinkled white satin glitter over the entire sheet. She punched enough snowflakes to cover all four of the edges of the card around the picture and then add Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to the backs of the snowflakes with a paint brush. She adhered them down to the card base making sure some of them slightly hung over the edges.
