Treasure, Play, Live

This card showcases my latest hot new discovery . . .              

 . . . did you spot it?  Of course not:  it's too subtle to be seen in a photograph.  And this time, it's not the camera's fault.  Give up?  It's the embossing powder!  It's WOW's Clear Matte Dull and it's a truly marvelous product!  The image, text, and corner design were all embossed with it.  It gives a nice raised texture with absolutely no shine.  There are many instances where a super-shiny line is not what I want, such as with designs that are distressed, or hand carved, or when a more casual look is what I'm after.  And since it's clear, it works over any color – as you can see – and that means that I need only one jar of this stuff instead of a drawer full of colors.  In a word, YAY!
