Gold Embossed Leaves

 Here's a Simple but Elegant Card
and A great Opportunity to get out your heat embossing
tool # 100005

All of the images from the AUTUMN SPLENDOR stamp set # 116503 were stamped with VERSAMARK INK # 102283 and embossed using GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER# 109129. It is amazing how many cards you can emboss using this cute little pot of powder.

TIP: Whenever you do embossing , be sure and lightly scrub the 
EMBOSSING BUDDY fabric sack # 103083 over your card stock before inking. This helps prevent embossing powder from sticking in unwanted places.

Card stock colors:
Very Vanilla # 100730
Bravo Burgandy # 105123
Kraft #107070

Posted by PicasaThe HAPPY THANKSGIVING sentiment is from a SU retired set ALL YEAR CHEER III, but there are lots of choices that would fit in the 

The ACORNS were water colored after being embossed using the Bravo Burgandy classic ink pad# 105123 and a AQUAPAINTER# 103954

Isn't the bow cute?  It's KRAFT TAFFETA RIBBON # 109068
It's softer than grosgrain and therefore easier to tie.

Other items used:
WIDE OVAL punch # 112082
Cutter Kit # 106958  includes 4 tools  ( created the distressed edges )
1 1/4" CIRCLE PUNCH # 104403

WELL, I hope this inspires you to pull out that embossing gun and powder. It always makes a great impact on your cards or scrapbooking projects.

See you soon!
