Back To The Beginning

When I started making cards, all those years ago, the first things I bought were a stamp, some ink, embossing powder, and a heat gun, and the card I have to show today has used those things. Now the stamps are fairly new, but the ink and embossing powder could possibly be the first ones I bought, and the heat gun is still going strong. In fact I never really got the hang of heat embossing, I always seemed to get a stray bit of embossing powder, but the purchase of an anti static bag has solved the problem, and my card making has gone full circle

I even dare show a close up of the heart

I have also used a quicky glue pen, cosmic shimmer glue and some ribbon.
