International Art and Soul Embossing

Come along to International Art and Soul challenge blog and join us for our next challenge which is 'Embossing'. I hadn't done any heat embossing for a while so decided whatever my card was like there would be some heat embossing on it too.

My card is a large ivory blank by Joanna Sheen. The red, orange and maroon card is all by Papermill. I used a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder to emboss the clocks on the red and orange card. I cut two different sized panels and joined them with a thin strip of maroon card before adding to a mat of maroon card. The sentiment is by Visible Image and I stamped that with a Versamark pad before adding red glitter embossing powder and heating it. I cut it with a Spellbinders die and matted it on to maroon card which I then cut to leave a small border round the edge, rounding the corners with a Carl punch. I added five small Mei Flower red gems to the bottom of the sentiment panel. The brass clock charm is by Craft Box and was my final addition.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Colour Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes
