Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 57 Heat Embossing

Our challenge this time at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Josephine and she chose Heat Embossing.  You can do anything you want as long as it includes heat embossing.

We are kindly sponsored for this challenge by The Stamp Man (and Lady, of course!) who are offering the winner the wonderful prize below:

Sadly I'm not eligible to enter, but you can, so why not give it a try?  There's nothing to lose and some delicious goodies to win!

Here is the card I came up with for this challenge:

For my creation I used a wooden stamp that I found whilst rummaging around for something else!  I used Versamark to stamp onto Clarity cardstock and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold embossing powder. I then layered the image onto some plain black cardstock and another layer of gold card I had in my stash.  For the base card I used an A4 sheet of plain black card folded in half.  I then embossed one corner in the same powder using one of my favourite La Blanche foam stamps.  To finish off the card I added a pink satin ribbon tied in a simple bow.

Here is a close up of the embossing:

I really like the finished card and I hope you do too?

One more thing, we are running the DT call again for this challenge.  If you wish to be considered (and I encourage you to try as we have a fabulously friendly DT) please add DT after your name when you enter your submission.

Good luck everyone, and have fun!
