Make my Monday First DT Make

Yippee! I am so thrilled to have been asked to join the Make My Monday Challenge Blog Design Team.

This is my first creation for this week's challenge, the theme of which is Heat Embossing.

I hope you like this card, which uses two different methods to produce a similar overall result, and will come over and join in the fun with me at Make My Monday.

I began by making a background using Dylusions Inks and a Mask.


I then embossed the image with White Embossing Powder.

The tag was stamped and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and coloured afterwards with Distress Inks and spritzed with water.
It was then overstamped with a script stamp.

The seam binding was dyed with distress stains and the text stamped onto small squares.

Just the addition of another parchment butterfly - these critters get everywhere - and a bit of distress around the edges,


  1. Absolutely gorgeous Rosie. Love the white embossed flowers against the vibrant green and have just one question - where has Spring gone lol
    So lovely to have you with us.
