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:
I came up with card:
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!
