Today's card is for the challenge going on over at Oldie But a Goodie, and the challenge is to use embossing. I used both dry and heat embossing on this anniversary card which, incidentally, is going to my husband next week for our anniversary. Shh...don't tell.
The edges of all the panels, including the torn edges of the sentiment panel, have been heat embossed with gold embossing powder, and the sentiment, using Inspired By Stamping's Happy Sentiments stamp set, was embossed with blue. I bought a set of embossing powders when I first started paper crafting nearly two years ago and hardly ever use them because I don't generally use colored powders, but the blue in the set matched this card exactly! The middle narrow panel was my own custom paper made by swiping two colors of ink pads on some beige card stock. It's a great way to make your own paper when nothing in your stash will do.
The stars were made with craft foil, embossed in the Big Shot and then I pounded out all the dots with my grommet hammer. They look 3-D but they're now pretty flat. They still looked a little plain so I colored the edges with copics.
A couple of chipboard brads complete this card.
Thank you for joining me today, and I hope your day is full of crafting goodness!
