Make it Mondays - For You

Happy Wednesday! Last night I had some fun playing with new stamps and paper and made a card for the Papertrey Ink Make it Mondays challenge. This week it is all about heat embossing. My favorite heat embossing technique is emboss resist, but on this card I just did "normal embossing" on the buttons to make them look real:



Here is a close-up of them to see the shine:


The houndstooth is stamped with the new background set and I so love the new postmark stamp set!!! It is so much fun to play with - endless possibilities! And the tiny envelope die! I will have to hold back myself from putting a little envelope onto every card now...



Just playing around - I had so much fun making this card! But I am sure I'll make another card using the emboss resist technique :)

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great one!!!

Hugs,
Vanessa
