More Project Details
The card size is 3" x 6". Using Versamark and the dot pattern from Three For You I stamped the dots on the right and left side of the card and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder. I also heat embossed the two sentiments on this card "friend" and "Grateful for you". The place setting image is heat embossed and popped up in the background. For the ribbon, I used 3 strands to tie a single bow... after tying the bow I applied a small amount of heat to the bow to curl the edges. I was surprised at how quickly the copper cording reacted to heat, it was much faster than the organdy ribbon, when attempting this technique be cautious of overheating.
