Happy Birthday, USA!

Happy Birthday, U.S.A.!  
Today, in the United States of America, we are having a birthday celebration.
And, I made this card in honor.

and the birthday greeting from the SS010 Greetings Set.

I started by stamping the Layered Doilies stamp with a VersaMark Ink Pad and poured on some red embossing powder to the top third of the design. I shook off the excess, being careful not to get any red embossing powder on another part of the image.

Next, I poured on white embossing powder the the second third of the image.  
I shook off the excess, being careful not to get it on any other part of the image.

I completed covering up the image with blue embossing powder, shaking off the excess.  
I heated through until it was completely melted on.

Now, this part is something I have never done before.  And, I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out.  After the embossing on the Layered Doilies cooled, I stamped the 'happy birthday' greeting with the VersaMark stamp pad and  poured red glittered embossing powder on and shook off the excess.
  I think it turned out pretty cool!  What do you think?  Have you layered heat embossing before?
If you have, share a link to your project.  I'd love to take a look.

Until next time...
