Thank you card and a lot of embossing

Hello, my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today and this time I am going to show you my new and very much embossed card.
For a long 4-5 month I was doing scrapbooking pages and altered projects for this  blog and this month was my turn to make a card. So I made one and then I decided to enter it to the web magazine and they  took it for the publication.Good news and bad news. As this card can't be posted here till August and I had to make another card for this post.
So here is the new card-summer colors, but in a kind of a muter way.
I very simple card made for WOW Embossing Powders blog post.


I used this Flowers Wow stamp and then heat embossed it with 4 summery embossing powders: Sour Lemon, Whirly Pop, Gummy Bear Green, Cotton Candy
My  tip here is to use a white pigment ink and not a Clear embossing one as I really want to see that the whole stamp will be shown. The second tip is  to put your cardstock on the top of your inked stamp and to use some roller  to get better impression on the inked image.
Then add 4 powders, one after another and you've done  with your stamped panel.
I made this card with the longer edge, border punched with MS punch, added some ribbons and stamped a sentiment , heat embossed again, on the same Kraft cardstock I used for the main panel. The colors of embossing powder are slightly different over the Kraft cardstock, but I think  I like this mute colors more.

The last technique I used here was an asymmetric ribbon pleating, hand stitched like a big zig zag from side to side and then pulled to this lovely pleated ribbon.
See you again nest time with another Wow projects.
