Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #9 - Heat Embossing
Well it is Wednesday and I am finally getting some time in my craft room to create a card for the Make it Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink.
The challenge this week is to do some embossing. So I first embossed a border along the bottom of my card panel with Background Basics: Petal Power.
Next I cut a matstack four label and also embossed it. Then I stamped and embossed the white circle tag with one of the individual flower stamps from the background basics petal power set to make a background for my sentiment which is stamped in Archival ink - jet black.
I tied a ribbon around the mat stack label before adhering it to my card panel and then adhered the card panel to my card (my favorite color Aqua Mist Cardstock from PTI for both the panel and the card) To give the panel some additional dimension I inked the edges with some PTI Fresh Snow Palette ink. I thought the card needed a little something more on the bottom so I added some mini-pearls along the stamped border. Just a few...not too many...it ended up being 4 which is an even number - is that a bad thing.....??? Anyway I like the way the embossing sort of looks like light pink velvet. I used red magic versamagic chalk ink with white embossing powder to get this affect. I think it looks kind of cool on the aqua mist cardstock. That is it for me today....off to make dinner for my men. We are having meatloaf, potatoes au-gratin and fresh asparagus! Mmm Good! Happy Card Making everyone! Can't wait to see what everyone does with this challenge on the PTI link blog.
