Heat Embossing with Embossing Folder


Hello! Today  I have a card for the Fusion Blue Christmas challenge which we can choose the sketch or the photo or both as inspiration for our creation. I chose to combine both for my card using the theme, colors, and ribbon from the photo.  I began by creating a triangle using Martha Stewart punches (double loop border and double loop corner)  for a design on the corner and sides of blue CS. Then I tried something new to me...I inked an EF with Versamark and embossed the Blue triangle and heat embossed with White EP...love the effect.  Before attaching this to an embossed white card base,  I wove Blue Satin ribbon into the loops and let it cascade. Finished with a Power Poppy Stamp in DI Stormy Blue.
