A 'TooFer' today ladies - Two For One - I don't know if my lovely US readers has this saying, or whether, they thought I was going mad . . . probably the latter and they are probably right!
Anywho, I didn't have a particular design in mind when I started out to create this card, so it was actually serendipity that it happend to fit with both of the challenges over at HLS! HLS is rapidly becoming my most favourite challenge site!

This is what I came up with. It has all three types of embossing, embossing paste, heat embossing and dry embossing,
First I made my own stencil cut out of acetate by using a die (sorry, another one from before I used to catalogue my supplies)
Then, I made some soft pink embossing paste with white paste and a little distress ink mixed in and spread it over my home made stencil on to a white card front and sprinkled it with irridescent embossing powder and let it air dry. Once it was dry I heat set the irridescnt EP with my heat gun.
The next step was to run one of my SSS, 'Stitched Hillside Border' dies to make a curved, stitched edge and mounted it on to a piece of matching pink cardstock that I had run through the Craft Too, 'Bringing' EF.
I finished it off with the die-cut 'Love' word from Clearly Besotted and this is my finished card.
As always, I appreciate the time you have given to popping by and thank you all for your comments and reciprocate where possible. Have a lovely weekend! Hazel xx
