Stampin' Up's Heartfelt Event - Perth Regionals 25th August, 2012 Part 5

Hello Friends,
Today I am showing you the last item I made for Stampin' Up's Heartfelt Event in Perth.  I used a Metal CD Container and decorated it for a Wedding incorporating a pocket for Money or a Gift Card on the inside.  I found that I needed to use the Embossing Buddy to stop the embossing powder from sticking to the tin around the outside of the stamped image.  I made sure I had a lot of the Embossing buddy powder on the tin before stamping.  If one of the images didn't stamp well  I removed the Versamark and Embossing powder with a tissue with some Isocol Rubbing Alchol. It cleaned the surface beautifully, let it dry and start again.
