Hello! Another rainy day! Better to stay in and play with paper.
I was playing with some embossing to make a card for Stamp TV's Mix It Up Monday Challenge-Emboss is Boss. I stamped the Cardinal from GKD's Peace and Joy with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then embossed with Clear EP. I like how clear embossing on black ink looks and use it often rather than using black EP which can be messy. I learned that tip from some of my stamping club friends. After coloring with Copics, I added versamark to the Holly leaves and embossed with the Clear EP to give shine. I used Versamark Pen on the uncolored berries and embossed with Red EP. If that was not enough embossing, I dry embossed the Pattern Paper that I used as a frame with Cuttlebug EF Gingham. Sorry to say the embossing does not show up as well I'd like, but it is there. I also heat embossed the Peace and Joy Sentiment with Gold EP....this shows up well enough.
Other Supplies: Neenah White CS, Pebbles Pattern Paper, Spellbinder Die, Wink of Stella, Misti.
I included this second photo to give another angle ( for some reason the left edge of the card shows a camera distortion that I could not straighten).
