Make It Monday - Heat Embossing

I didn't think I was going to be able to play along in this week's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink, but I found a few quiet moments during nap time to create this card.  I went very simple by using clear embossing powder on black cardstock to make the frame from the Mat Stack 4 Collection stand out. 

I then stamped the thicker flower from Spiral Bouquet in Fresh Snow ink and overstamped the line art image of the same flower in Onyx Black ink.  I stamped the frame and sentiment from the Mat Stack 4 Collection and cut it out and mounted it with foam adhesive across the frame.

I scored the very edges of three of the sides of the True Black cardstock using my ScorBuddy.  I die cut the bottom edge using the Edger's 1 Collection.  I scored the very bottom edge of the cardbase with my ScorBuddy before adhering the black cardstock piece to the card front. 

Thanks for looking!
