Hello, and today is a brand new month which means a brand new challenge over at The Cupboard Trilogy Challenge Blog is "embossing". I am fairly new to heat embossing and tend to forget about my collection of embossing folders, so this challenge was perfect for me using forgotten stash.

 I used a car stamp which features a pocket watch, as does the sentiment and tied that it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and some fab map paper I had in my stash. I also distressed the stamped images just to add a bit more of a vintage look. I hope you like the card, it is quite different from my usual style, though I love the result.

Kraft card blank
Tim Holtz Kraft Core strips, embossing folder, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks.
Memento Cocoa ink, gold embossing powder, paper from stash.
