This stamp has been in my NBUS box for years.
That's right, years!
Our challenge at CAS Mix Up,
to use heat embossing,
was just the excuse I needed to ink it up.
There's a lot of heat embossing on this card.
The whole background is embossed.
Here's a close up.
on a piece of Whisper White card stock.
Then I heavily inked the Large Blossom stamp with VersaMark
and stamped over the script, heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder
and was ready to color.
I used my Zigs to color the flowers, leaves and stems.
I used the last bits of Orchid Opulence cardstock.
(Stampin' Up retired it a long time ago.
I wish I'd stocked up. Love this color!)
When I stamped the sentiment, I misjudged and it looked too high.
It was a great excuse to dry emboss a little border across the bottom.
I had to emboss the card closed so it has that pretty embossing on the inside too.
All this embossing will let me join in at
Simon Says Monday Challenge
There's still time to join us at CAS Mix Up
The challenge is open until the 24th.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
