Make It Monday: Heat Embossing

This week's Make It Monday challenge from Papertrey Ink is heat embossing.  Here's my take on this challenge:

I decided to make a card for my dad.  His birthday was in March, but we will be celebrating it this weekend when he comes in town for a visit.  (Don't tell him that I hadn't made his card yet!)

I used Masculine Motifs stamp set and heat embossed the green leaf images and the tree scene in the center of the card. 

The center panel is adhered with foam dimensionals to give a little depth and interest.  The inks I used are Evergreen by Colorbox, Versamark, and Tea Dye duo by Papertrey.

I used Pinefeather, Fine Linen and Rustic Cream cardstock as well, all by Papertrey.  The die shape in the center of the card is Mat Stack 1, also from Papertrey. 

Thanks for stopping by and, as always, your comments are very much appreciated!!



  1. How pretty! I don't see many masculine cards I like but this one is amazing! Okay, guess I'll try the challenge...:)

  2. What a pretty card. I love the masuline card. I agree with Kathy, you don't see many and not as nice as this.

  3. What an awesome man card! I just love how it turned out and I know your dad will too :) I need to try using the negative of the die like you did, that is really stunning.

  4. I'm always on the look out for masculine cards and you really did a great job with this one.

  5. This turned out beautiful! Love those green leaves.

  6. I am sure your dad will simply love this card.
    I smiled when I saw you blog template, I have the same. I smiled again when I read your profile, I have two beautiful sons, and 3 guys with blue eyes. I also have a lovely craft room full of this and that which give me so much fun.

  7. I really like your card. The window cutout is really great.

  8. Thank you for sharing your card.. I just love it.

    Please come and visit my blog: I have a free digital stamp there & contest.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Oh, lovely! All the embossing is so pretty, especially the beautifully muted trees! Love how you framed them with the diecut.

  10. This is beautiful! I haven't really done justice to that set and I really love how you used it here.
