Lovely Lace & a fun technique!

Today's project is a card I made for a Demonstrator swap a couple months ago.  It's super cute and fun to make.

Here's the finished card.  

A little closer look at the heat embossing and sponging.  
To make the card front, I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I took the Lovely Lace embossing folder and inked up the inside flat side of the folder with VersaMark ink.  I then ran the card stock through the Big Shot in the embossing folder.  After it came out, I sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder over the side with the VersaMark, tapped off the excess and then heated it.  I then sponged ink over the raised areas that were not embossed.  That's it!  Fun and easy with a very cool look.

Supplies used:
Butterfly Basics stamp set
Lovely Lace embossing folder, XL Oval Punch, Heat Tool
Clear Embossing Powder, Stampin' Sponges, Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Ribbon
