Heat Embossing with Delicate Ornament Thinlits

I saw this technique and had to try it!  Rather than cutting with the Delicate Ornament Thinlit I applied Versamark to the thinlit and embossed.  I love it!  Scroll down to see an awkward angle photo so I could get the shimmer

Set up your big shot as if you were going to use an embossing folder.  In place of a bottom cutting mat use a couple sheets of fun foam. Add your paper,  carefully apply Versamark to the thinlet and place it on your paper being careful not to move it at all.  Place a cutting mat on top and run it through the Big Shot.  Carefully remove the die and apply the embossing powder.  Brush off any stray specks with a small paintbrush.  Heat emboss.  It's such a delicate look

I highlighted with Smoky Slate ink with an Aquapainter then Clear Wink of Stella over that.  I used the Pine Bough embossing folder for the branch. Added some Silver Metallic Thread to make it look like the ornament was hanging.  Finished it off with a rhinestone and a bow made from 1/8" Smoky Slate Stitched Ribbon.

This is the only angle I could get the shimmer to show.  My base card is Whisper White Thick.  I used Silver Glimmer Paper behind my top layer.  So much prettier IRL!

Thanks for looking!
