PTI MIM #183: Dry Embossing Over Heat Embossing

Because I've been vacationing a week at a time the last three months, I really haven't been crafting or visiting a whole lot of blogs. However, I managed to follow Nichole's blog to keep up with the sneak peeks and now I'm back home for Release Week. So, why not rush once again to meet another deadline for the latest Make It MondayDawn is showing us the technique of dry embossing over heat embossing. (By the way, if you've never been to Mackinac Island, I highly recommend it.) Without further delay, here's my card.

It's difficult to see here but I used another idea of Dawn's on this card. The top piece of Rustic Cream card stock stamped & embossed using Leaf Prints was dry embossed using PTI's Woodgrain Impression Plate before adhering with SU dimensionals. Before adhering to the Rustic Cream piece with the stamped sentiment, I glued on a thin strip of SU Baroque Burgundy card stock. Think this fits the bill for a masculine birthday card? I do…and that's all that really matters, right. 

Edited to add: Since the theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is O, I'm including this card because of the orange leaves. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Rustic Cream, SU Always Artichoke and SU Baroque Burgundy
Ink: SU Always Artichoke, SU Baroque Burgundy and SU Pumpkin Pie
Stamps: Stylish Sentiments: Birthday and Leaf Prints
Other: Woodgrain Impression Plate, SU Dimensionals and Clear Embossing Powder (Joann's)
