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.
