I titled this as such because I have trouble heat embossing. Is that goofy or what?!! Anyway, I embossed the bottom image about 5 times, the top 2 or 3. This creation slowly drove me out of my mind. I insisted on using both images since I went to so much trouble. So there you have it a double decker card or a tall and skinny. I'm just glad it's finally done.

Well, I believe it turned out beautifully! I especially love the butterfly and how you inked up the stamp.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
Love your double decker masterpiece. You may have struggled but the end result is wonderful.

That's a doozy of a double decker! I love it! The way you applied your colors is so pretty and I love the paper piercing. I have trouble heat embossing too! It's the oldest thing in the book, but sometimes I still can't get it right. Your card is really pretty and summery. Makes me smile and think it will be here before we know it! tfs

well worth the aggravation, because it is just beautiful.
not sure how old your EP is, but i know that i had a lot of trouble with some recently and i never had before. i decided that since my inkpad was still plenty juicy, it was likely that (eventually) EP may go bad. so i replaced it and have had no issues since.
