The Double Triplet

Debra Burgin Double TripletThis is a closer look at one of my projects from last week’s Stampin’ Addicts Retiring Stamps Blog Hop.

Black butterflies?  Is that a group from the 70s?  Perhaps I’m betraying my roots with this card.

Actually, I never cared for heavy metal, so this card just offers a lot of sparkle — via my tried-and-true VersaMark + Iridescent Ice technique.  I heat embossed my scraps after stamping (of course!) but before punching.  It’s easier to manage this process when the scraps are bigger.  You don’t want to have a 1″ square flying off the table and landing on your skin, because you know the side that lands on you will be the one with the molten embossing powder.  Ouch.
