Valentine wishes

The class held last Saturday was quite enjoyable! This card was a lot of fun. It is a variation on heat emboss resist. You also stamp images on AFTER you have completed the resist phase. A couple of the ladies decided to stamp images on top of the areas embossed in white! This created a very unique look. They just had to let it dry a few minutes longer.  You can check out the card that inspired me at and there is a tutorial for emboss resist at splitcoaststampers.
