Pocket Card…

The card today is one I made about 6 weeks ago & have been meaning to post, but things have gotten in the way.  I was really happy with the way it turned out.  I used a couple of Techniques on this card – Sponging, Stampin’ Pastels & Shimmer Paint.

For You…

Today’s card is a sketch from Stamping411 – http://stamping411.blogspot.com
Again, another easy one to do, the posibilities are endless!
Using SU Pastels, I’ve created a very light background, including the sun, then embossed over.  I didn’t want the pastels to be too vivid so to compete with the embossing folder.
Tutorial for Heat Embossing may be found here
This makes for a great Male Card!
