Pyrotechnics Celebrate Card

Doing a bit of catching up - another post for cards I made over the weekend.

This is one of those cards where I wish my photography skills were a little more "advanced" (which in my case, means I wish I had a few paltry skills, rather than non-existent ones LOL).

I have several important birthdays coming up, and one in particular is for a card-making friend who does amazingly gorgeous cards, and almost all of them have a little - or a LOT - of gold embossing. Since her work is so stunning, I definitely feel a bit intimidated but thought the use of gold embossing would win me some brownie points in her books :-)

I actually used 3 colours of embossing powder, in this order (L to R) - gold, platinum & silver - for the firework images. Although it looked nice, I still wanted a bit more "boom" for my card (pun intended). Using other images in this stamp set, I stamped over the firework areas with Versamark and added Sparkle Embossing Powder, which, when you move the card, gives it an iridescent sparkle (remember my lack of photography skills LOL).

Just like real fireworks in a night sky!

I'm off to a warm, sunny destination for holidays on the weekend, so forgive me if I don't reply to any kind comments left on my blog during that time. I also regret not being able to comment on so many lovely blogs that I follow. But I promise I'll make it up when I get back, tan in tow.

Have a lovely day & hope to see you again soon.
