Birthday Wishes with The Stamps of Life

Hi there!

I wanted to share a card I created today:

I really like these big, bold dies from Stephanie Barnard. I decided to try to emboss the whole die cut.
I cut two of the hearts, one with about 65 lb white card stock and the second in a 110 lb card stock. 
Then, I dabbed embossing ink all of the paper and applied gold embossing powder. The lighter card stock didn’t work as well and curled:
I missed a few spots, too, on that one so I will use part of it for something else. 
Embossing is my favorite technique and I never grow tired of it. So it was fun to play around a little with it for this project.
You can really see the shine in this photo:
I added a small piece of twine and then die cut the sentiment:

 One I assembled the card, I added some Clear wink of Stella and a couple of small crystal flowers to finish it off:

Thanks for stopping by!
