Heat Embossing

 Hi Crafters,

I won the challenge at Christmas Craft Creations a few weeks ago and was so pleased to be asked to join them as a Guest Designer for the month of June.

Their theme this month is


I thought I would use the prize that I won on that challenge to create my card as it was a lovely set of Christmas stamps and dies.

I have tried a CAS design this time.

Here it is again but tilted towards the light to hopefully show up all of the gold heat embossed details.

Everything has been heat embossed, the lovely poinsettia outline stamp, then I stamped again and used the dies to cut out the poinsettia layers. These have been coloured using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Little Red Wagon - #605 Make It CAS

Aud Sentiments - #276 ATG + Sentiment

Alphabet Challenge - E is for Easy, Simple Card

My Time To Craft - #458 Floral

CHNC Every Saturday - #545 ATG Christmas

Thank you for visiting, I will be sharing my second card as Guest Designer using these lovely stamps and dies in a couple of weeks time, hope to see you again.
