I have two cards to share today that feature heat-embossed backgrounds using WMS stamps. Both cards have similar elements and layouts, but achieve different looks.


For the first card, I stamped the lace image (my very favorite background ever!) onto Kraft cardstock and heat embossed.


The second card uses a background stamp, the knit one, from the same set, Faux Fun. This time I stamped in onto Hibiscus Burst carstock.

I love the texture and feel heat-embossing gives to a card, and as you can see, Waltzingmouse Stamps has some beautiful background stamps!

Thanks for coming by!
