Here's what I did to create this card:

Stamp snowman image, color, trim to desired size and add distress ink around edges
Trim Core cardstock to desired size to fit embossing folder
Run embossing folder with cardstock through machine and sand cardstock to reveal core
Trim patterned paper to desired size 
Layer image, embossed piece and patterned paper together and adhere
