Heat Embossing on Patterned Paper

To make the solid stamped image stand out on the patterned paper, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. This added texture to the card front as well.
I originally chose to use a corner punch on this card, but forgot that it is not wise to punch pieces of paper that have been taped together. Result--disaster. I cut the corner off and used a collection of buttons to finish the card instead.
