Use It!

Challenge #6 @ Use It!, from Regan:

1.Go out of your comfort zone, for me is it “guy cards”,
2.Use something you’ve been hoarding for a while.
3.Use some of your new favourite things.
4. Heat Embossing

My son Matthew will be 20 years old on April 20....so, I needed to make him a "guy card". Who says guy cards can't have hearts?

I heat embossed the HS chipboard heart w/blue Ranger embossing powder. The thickers were originally green. I painted them black and then painted them w/some glossy accents by Ranger. Before they were dry, I sprinkled some doodlebug black glitter on top. They look cool in real life.

The paper is new to me, Pink Paislee and I also used some Scenic Route from my stash.

Thanks to Rae and Regan at Use It!
