House Mouse Challenge 87

This week's challenge at House Mouse Monday Challenge Blog is "Embossing". Unfortunately my cuttlebug broke after only 6 months of use... I realized how much we depend on these die cutting mashine... Anyways, so, I chose rather simple nestie die shape, traced around it, and used the scisoors to cut the main image & the layering CS. What did I emboss, then?? I did "traditional" Heat Embossing for all swirls and hearts on white background CS. I used an old SU! wheel stamp. I covered the white CS with this stamp in red, and used fine detailed clear embossing powder. Since the image is rather simple, I decorated a lot! :-) I put glitter on the edge of white CS & red CS of the image and inside of the punched out hearts. Vertical sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Gorgeous card, your heat embossed background is stunning and I just love your cute image.
My deepest sympathies on the demise of your cuttlebug - I had one that 'exploded' (the side panel shot across the room) so I know what a loss it must be.

So glad you could join us at House Mouse & Friends,
hugs
