PTI January Blog Hop

January Blog Hop

The challenge for this month's blog hop (which is my first) was to create "total package" card. I love PTI's Big and Bold Wishes set and thought this was a good way to use it both inside and outside the card. Both were heat embossed with black embossing powder. For the envelope I used the scroll image from the set. I also heat embossed a mixture of red and glitter embossing powder for the scrolls and attached 2 small vintage buttons to the centers of the images.

  2. That greeting looks even more "bold" embossed in the black like that! It's nice. This might be your first hop, but I'll bet for sure it's not your last ;)
