Hello! It is Gloria with you today! I wanted to share a card that shows how well the WorldWin Papers ColorMates cardstock heat embosses AND dry embosses!
I made a standard sized card with Treasures Pitch Black cardstock. I then stamped the image with white ink onto ColorMates Original Light Coffee Brown cardstock.  Using white embossing powder, I heat embossed the image. 

Once the embossing was cool to the touch, I dry embossed the image with a matching embossing folder. (You can see I had a bit of trouble lining it up, but that just adds to the "charm"!) I fussy cut the bottom edge of the pattern, so I could add a bit of printed paper to the bottom of the card. 

I stamped the medallion image into the center of the card and heat embossed it. I then die cut some of the matching shapes out of designer paper and cardstock to add to the stamped shape. I die cut the star shape from a scrap of the Light Coffe Brown cardstock, and then covered it with white ink and white embossing powder. Topped with a black gem, it makes a great embellishment for the center of the card. 

Thanks for looking! Please visit my blog Scraps of Life!
