Happy Friday! This card is for Sharon's challenge for today: Stamp Simply #77 - Heat It Up! - "pull out those heat guns and heat emboss an image that will create a card conveying SIMPLE ELEGANCE!!!" I love heat embossing... I love watching someone see it for the first time and their eyes get big as they see it melt! It has such a wow factor on cards. Since I got my hands on Copic markers I must say I don't emboss as much as I used to, so this was a good reminder of how easy and pretty embossed images are. There is only one image on here, another rarity. The card is mainly about a simple image and showing off the Italian Floral Paper I used. I used my Southwest Corner punch to notch each corner, and created a frame using gold Sulky thread, accented with some small golden pearls. I cut slits in the sides of the oval, in between the ivory and brown using my xacto knife, then threaded my ribbon through the openings. I used a brown Copic marker for the brown border and added some teeny little gold dots. Click on the close up to see a better view of the paper! Another card with no Martha punch! Whatttt is going on? Finished card size is an A2.
Please visit my blog on Saturday, as in tomorrow.... I have some really BIG news to share!
