Beautifully Baroque Heat Embossing
When I first saw the new SU! catty, I fell in love with the "Beautifully Baroque" stamp and embossing folder (and the Eastern Elegance DSP while we're on the subject--last night many cards were made using that DSP). When I found the embossing folder, I knew I wanted to try out something a little different and fun.
I inked one side of the folder with VersaMark and then ran it (and the paper) through my Big Shot (I finally have one!!!). I decided I wanted a summery, airy feel to the card so I covered it in Pool Party embossing powder and this was the result. :o)
This was an incredibly easy card to make, and yet it packs a BIG punch. I'm definitely adding this to my list of go-to's when I need to make a card in a hurry!
This card uses:
*Inks: Coastal Cabana, VersaMark
*Papers: Coastal Cabana, PTI's white card stock (I feel it dry embosses better since it's slightly thicker than SU!'s Whisper White.)
*Stamp Set: Sweet Essentials
*Accessories: Pool Party embossing powder, heat gun, pearls
