I just can't get enough of the heated copper technique. Loll really has me hooked :-) Do check out Loll's Blog for all the hints for using the copper and gorgeous samples.
I was so pleased the way the Fresh Foliage Die worked on the Copper. I did roll thru my Big Shot 3 times and then turned over and rolled thru 3 more times. Worked great. You could try an extra shim probably too. Every Die seems to work differently. The Sizzix Bigz Dies work really well every time as well as Embossing Folders.
Just play around with the technique. Way, way Fun!
I designed my layout completely with the CAS(E) this Sketch #69 Challenge in mind. This challenge has become one of my very favorites. Do check out the Blog and fabulous samples from their very talented DT.
Enjoy and keep those in your thoughts that need it! Even better...let them know you care with a beautiful card made with Love :-)

Gorgeous card Nancy ... and a wonderful interpretation of the sketch! So happy you are having fun with the copper ... LOVE this die-cut and am surprised the thin pieces cut through the copper. Fabulous!

Nancy, it's gorgeous, as I knew it would be. I love the die cut foliage you used. I see some pretty pink in there. I'll be looking for some more of your copper beauties in the near future.
Hubby and I worked in the yard for about 8 hrs. today. Wonder what I'll feel like tonight. Yikes!!! Probably not well enough to get out my copper and make a card..maybe tomorrow.
