Lovely As A Tree - One Layer

Good morning (just!) and welcome to my 'Macho Monday' post:

 With the camera flash on:

For todays card (after my third attempt!) I used LOVELY AS A TREE stamp set and heat embossed with GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER. Now me and embossing power don't get on hence my third attempt!  And I am still not 100% happy with the result :-(   
I used anti-static powder but I still managed to get stray speckles of powder so please don't look too closely!  On my next order I will purchase an EMOSSING BUDDY to see if that makes a difference and will let you know the results.

My card was made for the LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE so I kept it very simple with lots of white/red space.
Back to the drawing board I think but I am determined to conker the clean and simple look so if you are in Devon today you might hear a few screams of frustration!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.


  1. This is stunning Eve, the red and gold combination is fabulous.
    You have to cut the House Mouse Decoupage out yourself I'm afraid!

  2. Very eye catching, I love the gold on red. Happy Crafting :)

  3. Stunning card Eve, such an elegant design in red and gold and a brilliant idea to do flash on and flash off piccy's, you've captured the embossing really well! Personally the stray flecks of glitter add to the design, gives a little bit of extra sparkle! :) Donna ♥ x
