Passion For Markers Challenge #625 - Embossing (Heat/Dry)

 Hi Crafters,

It must be my week! After choosing the theme for the new challenge at Allsorts on Saturday it's also my turn to choose the theme for the new challenge at Passion For Markers today.

I have a ton of embossing folders that I have gathered over the years and a draw full of different colours and types of embossing powders. I forget to use them on my cards and it is such a shame as they create interesting and pretty details in your card designs. So, I thought I would challenge everyone to use theirs.

My theme this week therefore is.....


After colouring the tulip border image from our sponsor with my Promarkers I hunted down my tulip embossing folder that has been languishing in the drawer for some time (actually it does have a yearly outing when I batch make my Easter cards) it is only A6 in size but with the extra matts and layers I have scaled this card up to a 5" x 7". Using the Ticker Tape set I stamped the word 'Happy' in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW red embossing powder. I then die cut the 'Easter' word and added this to the bottom of my design.
