Sprinkle silver embossing powder onto the snowflake.

Pick up and hold the embossing powder covered snowflake with a pair of tweezers, etc that have heat resistant handles so that you do not burn your fingers. I use a hemostat with heat resistant handles.

Use a heat gun to melt the embossing powder. Remember to hold the heat tool about 6" away from your piece. Sweep the heat tool over the image and don't hold it in one spot for too long. As the embossing powder melts, it will become more smooth and dimensional. If you overheat the powder, it will bubble and could burn the chipboard.
