Create Easy Heat Embossed Ink Blended Backgrounds for Stunning Notecards

by Lisa Mensing

In this video, I’m heat embossing and doing a little ink blending today to create this fun take on a notecard, pun intended. I always like to keep note cards around especially this time of the year when a lot of people experience the after-holiday “blahs”.I think it’s nice to send them a little note reminding them that their not alone and I’m thinking about them. I’m going to get started by sharing a few of the products I’m using and a reference guide before I jump into making this card.
