One of my great loves in creating cards is using embossing powders. I recently created a few cards in honor of Kim's 7th wedding anniversary, each one slightly different, using an assortment of stamps, EPs, mica powders - but all the same colors. The first one uses open rice sheaths in clear detail embossing powder found at Sparkle N Sprinkle. Next the Asian Characters were stamped and embossed with SNS gold detail powder. The edge was torn and embellished with more gold EP.
This card was cut with decorative cutters (another oldie but goodie in my stamping closet) The teal green leaves are stamped with VersaMark ink and then rubbed gently with the mica powders. This step is done after all the embossing is complete.
