I have enjoyed the recent emphasis on embossing! I love watching the embossing powders melt and shine before your eyes, and being a ‘texture’ person, love rubbing my fingers across the (dry) image when it is all done!

I wanted to have a play with vellum and embossed leaves, so inspired by a couple of Challenges, namely:

AAA Cards: A Game of Thanksgiving


and Time Out Challenge # 19: Embossing with an optional twist of sparkle

I came up with card:




Cardstock: Very Vanilla (SU), Vellum, Matt Gold Foil paper (my stash), Raspberry Ripple (SU). Stamps: Art of Life (KaiserCraft), Garden Fresh (Clearly Besotted). Ink: Versa-Mark. Other: 2 1/2 ” Circle Punch, Linen Thread, Gold Glory Embossing Powder (SU), Heat tool, glue dots, dimensionals (SU).

I had that piece of gold ‘foil’ paper for eons, and it was so nice to finally have a use for it! I liked the subtle glow it created behind the leaves. The leaves were stamped on vellum and fussy cut, and then secured together with glue dots. A linen thread bow was added (as my nod to the burlap) and secured with a glue dot also. The sentiment, from Clearly Besotted, was stamped onto a little piece of red cardstock and embossed in gold. The camera hasn’t picked up the gold on the red as clearly as I would have liked, but in natural light, it looks great. And, that was it.

Thanks for visiting!
