Fall Birthday Card Embossing


It's the middle the month and that means it's time for a new Scrapyland Challenge (http://www.scrapyland-blog.com/). The Scrapyland Challenge #28 is "Embossing (heat or dry)" using any brand of die that Scrapyland sells.  This challenge ends on November 4th and the winner, chosen by the Designers, will receive a $15 gift certificate to Scrapyland (http://www.scrapyland.com/) store. 

Lately, I like embossing some of my sentiments with clear embossing powder using the Versa Mark embossing pad.   I applied with Versa Mark, the Ranger Melt Art Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel powder on the Sue Wilson Happy Birthday sentiment.  I added red, gold, or yellow ink to the tips of the leaves to give it that autumn look and then added Ranger clear embossing powder with Versa Mark to make the leaves look shiny. 

I used part of the die on the Cherry Lynn Black Eyes Susan Strip for the center of the Martha Stewart Daisy punch.  I used this part of the die for the center of many of my flowers.

I used burlap paper and other rustic printed paper.
