AAA Cards Challenge #59 - Embossing

Leap year day tomorrow - so will you be proposing? Or maybe you'd rather just chill out and make a card! Well AAA Cards has a new challenge and we'd like to see some embossing.

Now I'm not that clever at heat embossing and my results never seem to match what I see in my head.  But I'm determined to keep trying, so this was an ideal opportunity to give it another go.

And I thought the chunky sentiment of this stamp would be a good one to use to practise my skills. I'm thinking it didn't turn out too bad!

I used both sides of a patterned paper and some enamel dots to finish off my card.

Stamp: SU, Botanicals For You
Ink: Versamark + black embossing powder
Paper: SU, Birthday Bouquet
Embellishments: Doodlebug Sprinkles, beetle black asst

Of course your embossing doesn't have to be the heat it up kind like mine. You could try embossing folders or dry embossing or any type of embossing that you know and enjoy using. There is a whole lot of DT inspiration waiting for you at AAA Cards - a must see!

Oh I nearly forgot - there's a $20 gift certificate to spend at Stampendous for the winner of this challenge. Now that's surely worth a try for!

Thanks for dropping by my blog today, your time is really appreciated. And keep crafting!
