The one thing I learned from all my Stamping Buddies is just because something is in the trash doesn’t mean it belongs there and should have a second chance!!! Yesterday’s card with the overlay acrylic coverstock piece that was a fail at heat embossing with gold embossing powder ended up in my trash. The acrylic coverstock was not heat resistant and warped and curled like crazy. So today, I pulled my first attempt of that card back out of the trash and hit it with more heat from my heat gun. It curled and buckled but with off and on heat I attempted to get it a close to usable level. I rolled the piece of the edge of my table, ran it through my Big Shot then thought maybe the laminator. The laminator actually worked. Of course it did pull up a few areas of the embossing but I consider that due to mother nature!!
To enter this card into the Can You Handle The Pressure challenge is to use an embossing folder and anything goes with a twist of leaves, I found my lovely Darice embossing folder and embossed ivory cardstock. Using my previously inked blending brushes, I added some soft rainbow colors over my leaves, and attached my panels to a ivory cardbase to complete this card.
Thanks to my friends to always reminding me with their makes to save those extras that seem like a fail but actually still have some use left in them.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.
