A challenging card challenge

it’s never easy making a card for a sad occasion but the theme of the card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters this week is a “sympathy” or “Thinking of You “card.

I used my bargain Penny Black stamp which I bought last year for 50p which I stamped and embossed in detail silver embossing powder. I matted it on to silver and navy card and then tied it with a silver-grey ribbon. The die cut is a Marianne die.

It’s a while since I’ve done any heat embossing but I still can’t fail to be amazed when the heat gun does it’s work and the embossing powder takes on that shine. I think it’s a technique I shall be repeating in the near future.
