Creating a Frame with Masks and Embossing

I wanted to frame the City of London 3 way overlay stamp from Clarity with an embossed frame.  It was a little fiddly, but I got there in the end.
Cut a 7” x 7” kraft card blank in half. Using the largest nested square picot die and the 3” nested square die, cut a frame from one half of the card.
Cut a 5” x 5” Kraft card blank in half. Stamp the #1 outline stamp from the City of London set into the centre of one half in Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
Add the London mask to one edge of the frame, add masks to mitre the corners,
press Versamark ink over the uncovered section. Remove the mask and heat emboss with detail white embossing powder.
In order to avoid the powder sticking to the glue from the mask, use an anti static pad.  Repeat until the whole frame has been decorated.
Stamp the #2 line art stamp over the outline stamp in Moonlight White Brilliance ink. Add the image behind the frame ensuring that it is centred in the aperture.
Add this to the front of a 7” x 7” kraft card blank.
Add two of Barbara’s word stickers.
To finish, colour the bus with red and black watercolour pencils.
