needed to snuggle up next to each other.
I left the sentiment off, for now, hoping to use it
for any of this stuff: "Miss You" or "Love You"
or "Happy Anniversary" or even simply "Hi Friend!"
And I'm curious,
do you do hybrid?
It's the only type of card I seem to make lately.
(The mushrooms & the heat-embossed background are stamped
the sky is a digital image printed & stitched.)

(Old faves: Distressed heat embossing
& fringe-cut mat)
For lack of a better name, I call this heat emboss texture
'distressed heat embossing':
It uses regular old clear embossing powder. Here's how:
1) Stamp Hero Arts Antique Brocade in White pigment ink.
2) Sprinkle on some clear embossing powder.
3) Heat it with a heatgun until you see some areas get darker.
Variation: You can even colour over it with a copic marker to get a
coordinating bit of coloured embossed paper:
The dark brown band is made by colouring over the distress embossed
river rock cardstock with Copic Markers (Dark Bark & Black).
Just cut little slits in the mat for texture &
ruffle them a little with your finger to separate.
Cheap, quick, fun.
