Give Thanks Card

My card for today is "Give Thanks to the Lord for He is good!"

This is my first time heat embossing.  It's not the best job done but I actually like it! 

Here is the card I made.

The stamp was one of my wood stamps I had in my drawer.  The moment I saw the stamp, I knew I wanted to heat emboss "Lord". 

I decided to use some hemp cord I bought from Walmart in the jewelry craft section.

I used glue but too much came out when I first squeezed it so I tried to fix it a little bit.  It probably would have come out better had I used my versa mark pad......but I like it.  It's not perfect but I am satisfied with the results for my first time.  I used the Reflections embossing powder in their brown bronze which turned into a bronze metallic.

I kept the card simple because I didn't want to take away from the scripture.

I distressed the plaid cardstock and used the Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles to cut out the scripture and for the matting.  I used pop dots to lift up the Scripture.

Hope you like it.  And if any one has some tips on heat embossing, please share!

Thank you.

Happy Crafting!

Due you use a heating tool for the embossing? If so, which one?
