Card Creating Tuesday - Use Heat Embossing

Today is

For today's project, we could use the
provided sketch, or use heat embossing.
I chose to use heat embossing for my card today.

I used the following supplies:

Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Cartridge
Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art Cartridge
Al La Mode Embossing Powders
Corrdinations Cardstock
PP is from Papercraft
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
My Craft Spot Crinkle Ribbon
Glitter Cardstock
Glimmer Mist
Close to My Heart "Easter Eggs" Stamp Set
Versamark Dazzle Ink Pad

I started off by stamping several different
Easter Eggs from the CTMH stamp set.
I love this set because it has about 12 different
stamps with different patterned eggs.
I stamped them all on white cardstock.
I then applied embossing powder in several pastel colors.
I used my heat gun to heat up the embossing powder.

Next, I sprtized each of the eggs with
Glimmer Mist in the coordinating color to
the embossing powder.  I cut each of the eggs out.

I cut the easter basket and all it's layers from
Celebrate with Flourish at 4.5"
I used a basket weave Cuttlebug folder on the basket.
I cut the eggs down to size so they would fit in the basket.
The sentiment was cut from
Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art at 2".

Thanks for visiting today and please make sure
to see what the rest of the team has created today
