Happy Birthday Lion Card

Created this masculine birthday card using Mark's Finest Papers Big Cats stamps.

The Lion looks like it is heat embossed but I used a new ink or fairly new ink, Delicata Golden Glitz, that I bought last mth. It is a juicy ink so maybe that is why it looks heat embossed. I stamped the Lion. Then used the Marvy heat tool to make sure the ink was dry because when I touched it in one tiny spot I had some ink on my fingertip. After dry with heat tool I embossed with Cuttlebug African Batik embossing folder.

ink: Delicata Golden Glitz
machine: Sizzix BIGkick

  6. I have not tried a heat emboss on top of a dry emboss - your card looks grand!

    1. Easy part is that the Lion is stamped with ink, Delicata Gold, no heat embossing. However, I did use the Marvy heat tool to make sure the ink was dry before I embossed the Cuttlebug African Batik.
