Embossing using Xuen paper

I bought some Xuen paper months ago from a local store. I used them to made a lampshade for my house. I found that the Xuen paper becomes translucent when heat embossed it. I was quite excited because it was perfect for a lampshade.

This week, I decided to join the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge using this technique. And the challenge this week is “Emboss it”

I heat embossed a piece of Xuen paper with the Spring blooms clear stamps set by Wplus9 and the stamped by the same stamps set using Hero arts mid-tone shadow ink- field greens. Then I adhere the paper onto a pattern paper from the Honey 6*6 designer paper pad by the Sweetest thing. You can see the flora pattern from the pattern paper through the Xuen paper as it is translucent after heat embossing.

Although it is not a perfect card and there are still a lot of thing that I could do better, I have so much fun in making this card.
