This Beautiful Day Amazing You Card with a delightful surprise in the making.  It was designed as a project for my online Coloring Club this month. I really liked the way it turned out with the surprise elements.  It looks like I used black patent leather on it.  Shhh, there’s a secret…I didn’t.  I used the fabulous, new Black Foil Sheets for this fun effect to compliment the Black Embossing Powder of the flower.  It doesn’t fully show how stunning the Black Foil Sheets are, but I am telling you, they are gorgeous!

I stamped the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set in Versamark ink after I had swiped the Embossing Buddy across my Thick Whisper White cardstock.  Do you use an Embossing Buddy?  If not, you will want to add this to your shopping list!  It helps remove moisture and any static from the cardstock to prep for heat embossing.  And it will eliminate any of those nasty little unwanted tidbits that might hang out on your paper, too.

Back to our regularly scheduled broadcast…I don’t know which is the show stopper on this card:  the boldness of these gorgeous flowers or the words cut out of the Black Foil Sheets. I love the look of this speciality paper, it really looks like black patent and I won’t even tell you how many pairs of shoes I have in black patent.  It all started when I got my first pair at age 3 and was having so much fun slipping and sliding in the market that I feel and broke my arm!  Oops, and I STILL love black patent…and these Black Foil Sheets.

Thanx for stopping by and make all your projects A Crowning Creation.
