City Crafter - The Heat is On

Our new theme at CCCB is to use heat embossing.


For my DT card I used two different heat embossing techniques.

First I die-cut the Christmas tree pieces. Then I covered an embossing folder in Versamark clear ink and ran them through my Big Shot. Then I heat embossed with silver powder.

For my background, I stamped and embossed a Judikins background stamp with clear embossing powder , and then inked over it in purple.

Our guest designer is Susie Witter - please come over to the City Crafter Challenge Blog and see what our GD and DT have made. I hope you'll join in with the challenge.
