Continuing to work on card sets...
I use this same layout for a card set each season. I stamp the element three times with my castaway pad (it bleaches out the color) onto Arcobellano paper, then restamp in color, deliberately off-center. Then I stamp it three more times and emboss, and emboss the thinking of you with the same powder. For fall I used a leaf stamp, for summer, a dragonfly. Different colors and embossing powder for each.

I bought a craft iron to use with the castaway pad, but it does not get hot enough, so I rely on a regular iron. The little iron is nice to have for ironing ribbon, so I'll hold on to it.
