Embossing


When I saw the challenge at As you like it was your favourite type of embossing I thought how much I love heat embossing and don't do enough of it.I love the way the magic happens when you heat the embossing powder and it melts and looks so pretty.

I got a new set of oriental Card-io stamps and the branch was just right for what I wanted. I made a similar card last year with pink and blue snowflakes but for this one I used gold embossing powder. It looks so shiny and gold but that doesn't come across in the photo. The deer s from the Card-io deer deer set. I used chunky white enamel embossing powder which has to be heated carefully from underneath otherwise it flies everywhere,  i used a MFT stencil for the hilly shape and a blue ink pad. The Martha Stewart crystal glitter has never been used before and I really like it. I wanted to add some colour so layered it onto red card and used the large Memory Box sentiment die, another die which I really like but which I don't use that much as it is so big.

Early start for the hospital craft fair today so will link up later.
