more from the 'land of scrap'

I made this card yesterday and had SO much fun with it. I stamped and heat embossed, added 'bling' (I hate that word for some reason), and simply enjoyed the whole process! I honestly couldn't wait until daylight so that I could get it photographed.

Photobucket
The chipboard letters were painted with acrylic paint and then heat-embossed with clear embossing powder to make them just a little glossy. I also wanted a strip of paper to match the letter, so I painted and heat-embossed a strip of cardstock and took the scalloped scissors to it. It makes for a really fun texture on the card. I'm planning to duplicate this card in a smaller size; this one is about 5x7.

supplies used: patterned paper-Scenic Route, SEI, Making Memories, Chatterbox. stamp-Hero Arts. ink-Versacolor. embossing powder- Joann's. bling-Hobby Lobby.

I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day!! I spent the morning working on a quilt (which I'll be sure to share soon) and I'm off to my parent's house for the afternoon.
