I finally finished my last challenge (#9) from the Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party last weekend. Shannon at Sharing My Work for OWH challenged us to use a neglected tool. I used my heat embossing tool. It has been a while since I heat embossed and the results turned out gorgeous.
This is a wedding card I made for the son of a friend. I stamped the Stampin'Up! Mr & Mrs in Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink and embossed it with Zing Clear Finish embossing powder. It gave it a nice shiny raised feeling. I used the Stampin'Up! Apothecary Accent Framelit to cut it out. The paper is Creative Memories Tie the Knot Addition (no longer available). I used Our Daily Bread Stamps for the inside of the card.
Then I made a gift card holder from my new Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge. I found the idea on Diane's blog Capadia Designs. She was one of the first blogs I ever started following right after I bought my Cricut. This Gift card holder is on page 55 of the Artiste Cartridge book and is cut at 5 inches.
