August Rudolph Day

It's time for another Rudolph Day - this month my card uses both wet and dry embossing.  I'm also using a new Clearly Besotted stamp and die set that I bought in the CB clearance sale - perfect for the NBUS Challenge. 

I used the stitched die to emboss a square in the centre of the card front.  I used the Crimson Red ink to stamp the mittens onto a snippet of white card and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I stamped the hearts onto the plain mittens before using the coordinating die to cut them.  I placed the card into my MISTI and laid the mittens onto the embossed square to line up the sentiment.  The sentiment was then stamped and embossed.  To finish I attached the mittens with foam pads.

To make my card I have used:
     4" x 4"" white matt card blank
     Clearly Besotted 'Warm Wishes' stamps and coordinating dies
     Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables' die
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Versafine Crimson Red and Deep Lagoon inks
     Stampendous clear embossing powder
     Snippets of white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Embossing (wet or dry)
     NBUS Challenge - August (my CB stamps and dies)
     Pearly Sparkles Challenge - Anything Goes 54
     Rudolph Day Challenge - August Challenge

This card with the two pair of mittens is really sweet. I like the stitched die used as an embossing plate...the stitched square is very effective to frame those sweet mittens.

Thanks for taking part in the August Rudolph Days Challenge.
