FM89 the second

I heart heat embossing. That's why I was happy to play along for a second time in the current Friday Mashup - CAS and/or heat embossing. This is the card I made for my hubby... He bought (!!) one for his brother that was similar, and commented to me how much he liked the simple black & gold, so I made him one just like it :P There are little gems (Taylor's Tiny Twinkles) on the nose (red, of course) and through the antlers (black, clear, red, gold), and some red satin SU ribbon across the bottom. I was looking for a nice sentiment for the front, but couldn't find one at hte last minute, so left it.

FTR, what i don't heart is cheap embossing powder. So please learn from my mistakes - buy the good stuff. it WILL be worth it in the end.

Another beautiful card! Love the gold embossing against the red ribbon. Thanks for playing with us again at The Friday Mashup ;)

Beautiful striking colors. I love that you can make a card just as good (better!) than a store-bought one. And the little touch of Rudolph's nose is perfect. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.
