Simple Thanks for Manic Monday

By With No Comments


One of the most effective techniques for your paper crafting projects is heat embossing. It adds such an elegant touch and makes a simple card a little more impressive. This card uses Stampin’ Up!’s  A World of Thanks (available in wood or clear mount). (and no, I don’t know why there’s a “u” at the end of the Japanese thank you – we always spelled it arigato in our house). I used Whisper White craft ink – easier to see – on the new thick Whisper White Cardstock (LOOOOOOVE this). The thick cardstock makes for a perfect no layer card. I did a combination of Silver and Iridescent Ice embossing powders on the image to add a bit of shimmer to the metallic colour. I just used an empty button container and mixed the embossing powders at about a 2:1 ratio (but you can adjust as you wish). We will often do a heat embossed card in stamp class or stamp club, or if you’d rather learn from the convenience of your own home, I did do an online class about embossing a little while ago.

Here in Ontario it’s the Civic Holiday – yay for long weekends! Hope you are able to spend some time with family and friends…and maybe a bit of time crafting too!!
