Things Remembered

We recently had a meeting with our Primary teachers at church.  I was elected/forced/volunteered/nominated....something to that effect, to make the invitations.  I find this kind of thing fun most of the time, but had a hard time coming up with something that I felt like went with our theme of "Things Remembered" well.  Still not sure I did, but it's done now! 

The heart from this card comes from the Polka Dot Punches set.  I think it looks great embossed!  To emboss it in the exact color I wanted (Sahara Sand to match the printer ink on "Things Remembered"), I inked up the stamp in Versamark first, then directly onto the Sahara Sand ink pad, then the paper.  Next I poured clear embossing powder over it and applied the heat tool.  Using the Versamark ink pad (a clear, sticky ink pad) and clear powder this way, you can make any colored ink pad into an embossing pad.

I'm not sure how many cards I've made in the last month, but it's over 300.  My neck, shoulders and head are still feeling it!  This feeling brings back memories of why it was necessary to stop doing SU.   :(

Sorry you're so sore after your 300 cards! I would be sore after that too - you've been busy!!! Looks great!
