CASual Embossing

This week's challenge at CASual Friday's is to use embossing, either dry or heat.  I made one card with purely dry embossing on Friday evening, but really wanted to play with my heat gun on Saturday and had planned a little series of mini cards to go to the craft sale for St Luke's this coming weekend.  However, one of my jobs on Saturday was to book tickets for our favourite comedian who is doing a few extra gigs at the National Theatre for a show we missed out on getting tickets for a few weeks ago - tickets went on sale at 9.30 am and I FINALLY secured mine at 4.17 pm precisely, after numerous screen refreshers on the laptop and frustrated redails on the phone.  Needless to say, this somewhat curtailed my crafting plans.....

I did manage one mini card, and will all the prep for the craft sale still left to do, it looks like he will be on his loansome so I thought I'd share him now and stop pretending I'll find time to make him any friends this week.

The plant and sentiment are both from an Elzybels set (sadly no longer trading) which were stamped with versamark and embossed with extra fine copper ep.  I then dry embossed a strip of kraft card using a border embossing folder and it isn't showing up too well on the photo but I added a copper rub-on cream to the raised areas to match the embossing powder.  I may make a set of these at a later date as I think they could make very useful little cards with a variety of sentiments.

Catch you later, Craftilicious x
