I varied the this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO192) a bit.  Remember that having a sketch is a real time saver.  However, you can always add your own creative spin.


  • Stampin up because i care rubber stamps heat embossing There's something so classy about layering White on White or Vanilla on Vanilla.  I used Very Vanilla on the focal point (including the mat below) for a faux dry embossed look.
  • Allow your heat tool to warm up for about 5 seconds before applying heat to your image.  That way the heat will start to melt the powder vs. blowing a few flecks around (that melt in annoying places) because the air is still cool.  An Embossing Buddy helps, too.
  • A single gold brad defines the corner.
  • Swap the sentiment for a bridal message.  I think the formal look of this card would be appropriate for a wedding, too.

LOVE FREE PRODUCT?  Here are three great ways to earn free stamps and merchandise when you place an order with me (including my Stampin' Pretty Rewards Program)!

  6. Absolutely the height of elegance, Mary. I ADORE heat embossing – it’s what converted me from a scrapbooker to a stamper, in fact. Thanks for the tip about letting the heat gun warm up first; I’ve never heard that one before! Will definitely be employing it in the near future.

  14. Good morning, Mary: What a beautiful card!! So elegant, classy, stunning. I think it will be totally appropriate for a wedding or, if you change the embossing powder to silver, you have a gorgeous card for a 25th. Aniversary.
    Enjoy your trip and bring back lots of pictures. I hope you see a Bald Eagle in the wild, flying or perched on a tree branch. I’ve never seen one like that except on pictures and (sadly) in a zoo.
