Could you try layering some white embossing powder on top of the white ink?

also… if you go this route… I would use ultra fine embossing powder, so the details of the snowflake will show.  good luck!

I would hit up your nearest scrapbooking store and consult with them. I know there are different kinds of ink out there, some juicer than others and hold more pigment. The embossing is a good idea, but depending on how many you have to do could take a long time—plus, if you have never embossed before you can run curling the paper or over embossing and the snowflake looking like a blob. But definitely go by the scrapbooking store if you can.

I have found that the Cats Eye ink pads work really well.  You can find a cheap heat gun at Michaels or Joanns thats about $20 and they have discount coupons all the time if you are looking into embossing.

You don’t have to use a heat gun you can use on of those cups warmers that you can get at Walgreens.  Their about 4-6 dollars.

Yeah unfortunately white ink of any kind is usually too translucent to actually show up as a solid white on a dark color.  (I had this same problem when trying to Gocco white ink on teal paper).

I haven’t embossed before, but you seem to have some great advice above….. or, if you’d consider silver ink, metallic ink is usually a heavier consistency and more opaque.
