You've Got This Copper Thank You Card

Since it's Friday (I know, where does time go!) my card today is entered into the Project Highlights, which is HUGE today with projects from talented people from all over the planet - well worth a visit if you haven't already!

It's official - I'm completely addicted to copper! It's one of the new products in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue (to be launched 1 June). Today I've been copper heat embossing anything that stayed still long enough!    

I can tell that I'll be needing more Copper Embossing Powder before long!

SU, sneak peek new catalogue, You've Got This, turning brads to copper colour
The copper looks equally good against dark or lighter shadess!

The base of this card is a 5.5" square of Crumb Cake cardstock with layers of Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and the utterly gorgeous new Specialty DSP called Affectionately Yours.  This is one of the sheets that features beautiful copper highlights.

I used the flower from You've Got This and heat embossed in copper (of course!) on Early Espresso cardstock.  Then I added some black shading with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and a Blender Pen.  

The greeting is from Rose Wonder and is copper embossed onto Basic Black card cut with one of the dies from Project Life Cards and Labels.

I cut some Crumb Cake card with one of the Lots of Labels dies and wrapped some Basic Black Stitched Satin Ribbon around it before I adhered the fussy cut flower.  I then added a couple of Mini Brads.  But wait .... they're copper!  I transformed them into copper brads along with the two Candy Dot Bases and the Antique Brad.   It's so easy to do ... and that's where the addiction sets in!  Simply give them a coat of Versamark and dip them into the embossing powder.  Then melt the embossing powder with a heat tool.  It's a good idea to hold the items (especially if they're metal) with some tweezers so that you don't burn your fingers!  I added some Crumb Cake Candy Dots to my newly copper Candy Dot Bases.

I finished the piece off with a Basic Black bow.

So to whom am I going to send this card? - Well, she's a very inspirational lady!  If you pop back on Sunday, you'll know who I mean!

You might want to take some time to visit the amazing Project Highlights over on Kylie Bertucci's blog and vote for your favourites.  

Thanks for visiting and I  hope you like my card.
