Embossed Dahlia Thank You

It's Friday.... yeah! This weekend will be filled with apple picking and honey bottling.  It's that time of year; I love the cooler temps and the colors changing. We harvest our honey once a year on the farm and this weekend it's time to jar it all up, getting it ready to store and to sell. Even with the busyness of the weekend, I hope to find time to get into the craft studio to get a start on some holiday projects.  I'm sure so many have already started theirs, but it's really a challenge for me to put my holiday design thinking cap on until the leaves start to fall.

Tomorrow is officially "World Card Making Day" and I hope to do my part! Check back to see what I've got crafting up. For today, I have a card I made using a really fun technique - heat embossing and coloring on acetate.  Remember overhead projector sheet? I know I'm really dating myself here... I don't think my kids will ever know what those are in this day of white boards and smart boards. But I remember them; that's what acetate is.  I used it to create the window in this card.

I head embossed the dahlia image with white embossing powder.  Then I colored the back side of it with Copic markers.  I love how it turned out, but I think this is one of those projects that's better in real life.

I hope you enjoy your weekend and I'll be back tomorrow with an official World Card Making Day card, and then again next week with some holiday projects!
