Make It Monday Challenge #9



It really should be called Make It Saturdays, right? ;-D I've been busy this week, and next week looks busy too, and then the next week is Easter week . . . shoot, I'm glad PTI gives us a whole week to get each challenge done! Challenge #9 is to use heat embossing on your project. Since I use heat embossing on 99.9% of the cards I create, this was right up my alley. I went CAS and embossed flowers from Flower Garden (which I got with my Papertrey Paper Dolls gift certificate!) in white on True Black cardstock. I added a sentiment from Signature Series: Dress Form because I liked how it looked, design-wise. I thought about adding one POP of color, but I decided that Flower Garden doesn't need one! I am in love with both stamp sets . . . wish I had a week off from work just to play with them!

Supplies
Stamps: PTI--Flower Garden, Signature Series: Dress Form
Paper: PTI--True Black
Ink: Watermark; Embossing Powder--Ultra Detail White
Misc.: Corner Chomper

Oh wow, beautiful CAS card! I love the white embossing on black - so elegant looking. And now I'm wondering Flower Garden - Do I have that? lol. Beautiful! I know what you mean about time - this challenge is right up my ally, too - but argh...not enough time in the day, lol.

Wow Jill this is awesome! So striking. I'm in awe of your embossing, that took patience! I agree with keeping this black & white. I don't own the Garden set, but it sure is moving up my list.
