Another week has gone by, and our challenge over at Bah!Humbug! is to use die cuts on our card. I used a nestie to cut out the mat for my image, and used a sizzix die for the corner pieces. The image is from a rubber stamp my husband recently picked out at Michaels when I dragged him there during our regular grocery, etc, "outing". Since he picked it out, I'll probably give him this card at Christmas. This makes it for "someone special", which is the challenge at CHNC. The image was heat embossed using black embossing powder after stamping with Martha Stewart's black ink , and took several tries to get it looking OK. If anyone has tips on how to keep stray embossing powder from staying where it isn't wanted, I would be very interested in hearing them. I finally used a very small paintbrush to try and sweep the excess off the paper. It mostly worked.
