Fun Embossing

Hello Stampers - Are you ready for some fun embossing?

Well I totally missed the forecast for yesterday.  It basically rained most of the day.  Needless to say I did not get to my flower beds.  I did however do some things in my craft room.  I have cards to post for the next couple of days so I can focus on my Bags & Tags classes this week.  I always love having cards to post ahead of time!

For my card today I actually began with a sketch but then went in a different direction so this ended up being my own design.  When I got the Floral Affection embossing folder I was so excited.  I will be honest I have tried embossing it using a piece of card stock.  My Big Shot is so tight that it kept creasing the paper.  I have to devise a way to be able to emboss it so it does not do that.  Since I had an idea I wanted to work with, I decided to use the opposite way to be able to use it.  I cut my banner using the framelits.  Then I positioned the paper in my embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot.  It did emboss it without creasing the paper.  I then used my 2016 - 2018 markers to color the top of the embossing.  I loved the look!  I mounted it on a piece of Dapper Denim card stock.  I then used the Softly Falling embossing folder to emboss my background.  I attached the background to my card base and the banner on top of that.  Now I needed a sentiment.  I went to a set that was a special photopolymer set from last year and used one of my favorite saying from the set.  Here is my completed card.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I am excited to start the second session of Bags & Tags this evening.  It will be fun to teach them more things they can do with their punch board.  Have a Terrific Tuesday and do some fun embossing yourself today!

This is really nice. The embossing is great and the coloring perfect. When I first looked at your card I thought you embroidered it. That is how sharp the embossing and coloring is. Great card.
