Dry and Heat Embossing with Stampin' Up! Folders & Stamps

I've been meaning to use my new Nature Walk stamp set since I received it as a freebie for my sales during Sale-a-bration and finally the challenge at Less is more has prompted me to get on with it and use it.  The challenge that the lovely Chrissie and Mandi have set this week is embossing with either dry embossing or heat embossing.  I've used both.  I also used my new elegant bouquet exclusive embossing folder to set up my background on this basic black card and then heat embossed the white moth firstly on the card in white and then onto vellum paper before cutting out part of the wings and adhering just the bottom with crystal effects to give the impression of flight.  I got the idea from US demo Linda.  I will try later with better light to improve the photograph. 

Now off to do the usual rush of Saturday morning taxi service collecting Charlie from sleepover, delivering him to trumpet and then onto his gymnastics competition.  Tonight thankfully is ours!!!
Make this is great weekend!
Love Zx
