Another celebration

This is very similar to the previous card shown here. This time I embossed on a piece of copper star dream card and then distressed with deep red metallic gilding wax - lovely stuff to work with and smells nice as a bonus!

I used the Dawn Bibby Personal Impression stamps again, this time inking with versamark and heat embossing with detail copper powder. The paper I stamped on to is My Mind's Eye alphabet soup girl 'sweet song'

Once again the paper clip is there to keep the card closed:

Very difficult to get a photo of the inside of the card as it's fairly dull today and the camera is insisting on using flash.

Because the stamping is heat embossed, it looks different depending on the way you look at it. One way it looks dark:

and the other way it looks light:
