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!!
