Make it Monday 9 - Heat Embossing

Hi! How was your weekend?
Mine was so much fun! On Saturday Jeff and I had a date! We started off at the farmer's market in Williamsburg, we bought some herbs for the kitchen (thyme, cilantro, & parsley) and some local honey. Then we had an awesome lunch at the Trellis and headed over to New Town where we stopped in at the awesome wine store they were having a wine tasting! we had some gnocchi (my favorite!) with some red wine that was just phenomenal. we brought home a couple bottles (i'm totally going back next saturday - i love that store!) and played board games and watched movies for the rest of the night!

(us in Williamsburg - i love the photo booth app on my phone!)

anywho, on to today's card!
Today's Make it Monday challenge was to use heat embossing!
I love all kinds of heat embossing but one of my favorites is distress embossing - i love the texture - just too fun!

Everything's from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted
Cardstock: Simply Chartreuse, Kraft, & Dark Chocolate
Ink: Distress Embossing Ink (if you've only used versamark before - give this a try - it's super juicy and smells like red hots!), Dark Chocolate, & Shabby Shutters Distress Ink
Stamps: Turning a New Leaf & Father Knows Best
Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder & Ink
Cork & Rustic Button Twine
