JOY card with a Snowflake in the center

I searched JOY cards on Pinterest and found a few I really liked but did not have the supplies I needed to re create so as I was looking threw my stash I found a bunch of wooden snowflakes and decided to roll with it.

 I am using a Lid from an old box to hold my snowflakes while I heat emboss them.

It protects my hands from getting burned and keeps the piece from falling.
 Here it is with three layers of white heat embossing.
 I used heavy weight white card stock and cut out the J and Y four times and glued them together with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.
 I decided I wanted a little color for this card so I versa marked half the snowflake and added some blue powder, then after that heat set and cooled I did it again and added some glitz embossing powder on top of the blue.

The cricut spatula works great to pick up the wooden and card stock heat embossed peices.
 I was going to use a white card base with a white wood grain embossed mat but I believe that was too much white.

I added again blue then glitz embossing powder and Tombow Mono Liquid glue to adhere to my card front because the mat got a bit warped.

I trimmed the edges of the card stock card base to make it even.
 I am using a wood grain textured embossing folder as well.
