Creative Elements with Heat Embossing

I love the look of clear embossing on coloured cardstock, and it works particularly well on darker colours.
This card uses the stamp set Creative Elements (#128523 in wood, or #122647 in clear).  Each image was stamped in Versamark ink (#102283) then covered with clear embossing powder (#109130) and heat set using the heat tool (#129056).  The card stock is Chocolate Chip (#108599) and I've used Very Vanilla (#106550) for the Happy Birthday (from Memorable Moments stamp set #126682 in clear or #132039 in wood) which was cut out using the Labels Framelits (#125598).

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from a new pack called Soho Subway (#130140).  There are some great patterns in the pack and it could easily be used for male & female cards as the patterns and graphics are interchangeable.

Punching butterflies is easier than ever with the Elegant Butterfly punch - I've snipped off the little ends from the wings because they got in the way of the sentiment, and the banner is hand cut from a scrap of Chocolate Chip card stock.  

Lastly, I made a flower using Simply Pressed Clay (#130685), died with re inker (Soft suede maybe??)

What do you think?   Feel free to comment below!  I love to hear your thoughts.

Happy Wednesday.  Hope you are enjoying the unseasonal warmth.
Cheers
Karen

  1. Very elegant Karen, I love the embossing on this card. The little rose bud in clay is a perfect centre for a butterfly.
