One Layer Wednesday--Heavy Metal
It wasn't easy getting this one photographed so that the gold embossing would show, but here it is. Thanks, Susan, for another great challenge!
Since I also like to keep my cards mailable, I made this one postage friendly by avoiding all that extra "stuff" that makes the envelopes bulky. For handouts, I can splurge; but I've come to prefer the clean and simple look anyway.
For the sunflower and leaves, I used a retired SU set (Sketch It) that I just bought last week and have been using a lot since. First I stamped with VersaMark and chalked the flower. The leaves were stamped with Autumn Leaves rainbow dye ink pad. The greeting is a Hero Arts clear stamp, inked with Versamark and gold embossed. I also embossed the flower center.
