Many Thanks with Gumdrops

Happy New Year!

Here is the Thank You card that my friend requested...bright and bling. I actually used a sketch from a new challenge (link is below).

Look I am getting good at heat embossing. I have two colors (silver and clear) now and need to work on collecting more. I even picked up a static bag today from Michaels and used the 50% off coupon. I found a new link that you may be interested in if you like heat embossing...WOW Embossing Powder. They are having a giveaway.
Materials:
Just Because Cards cartridge ~ gumdrops (p. 28) cut at 5 1/4"
Winter Woodland  cartridge ~ circles cut at 1 1/4"
brightly colored papers and black cardstock are from the scrap box
silver and white cardstock
green ribbon
silver gems

Challenges:

I also made this card using the same sketch. I actually made it first, but I didn't think it was bright enough. The raccoon is super cute though with his mask.
Materials:
Live Simply cartridge ~ raccoon cut at 2 1/2"
K&Company papers
purple cardstock
blue ribbon
purple gems
thanks stamp
wiggly eyes

  3. These are great G! Love the gumdrops! Make sure you put on your list white embossing powder. Recollections makes a good one. It really works great on black and brown paper.

  4. That raccoon is too cute looking. I might have to check out BusyBee's suggestion for white EP. I really dislike heat embossing, but sometimes you need to do it. It sounds like you are taking to it like a duck to water.
