Crafty Cardmakers Challenge: #91 Pick Three Different Techniques

This challenge required the choice of three techniques from a list.  I have chosen heat embossing, distressing and masking. 
I took some Core'dinations ColorCore card and tore roughly to fit my card.  I then screwed it up, unfolded it and sandpapered it for a distressed look before sticking it to the card. 
Next I cut an oval from some white card and stamped three cupcakes onto it.  I then masked these and stamped two more 'behind'.  I coloured these with watercolour pencils. 
I used an embossing pen to mark the edge of the oval and heat embossed with silver, then stuck it to the card.  The final touches were some heat embossed silver flowers and a couple of strawberries.


  1. I love your bright background and those little cupcakes look good enough to eat. Your embossed line is so accurate! Whenever I try to do that I end up with a blob where my hand slipped.

    Thanks for joining us with your lovely card.
