INTERNATIONAL ART AND SOUL - CHALLENGE NO 4 - EMBOSSING


Good afternoon blog friends - this fortnight our theme over at the International Art and Soul Challenge is 'Embossing', now that can be dry embossing or heat embossing or ....... a mixture of both!  Simply put, you decide!!!



 I asked the maestro to take a picture of the card slightly opened so that you could see the inside and also the flowers - I love the way you can make these petals stand out - especially the 'outline' open ones.


I actually made two of these cards because I loved the colours and the design so much, the only difference being the sentiment.  I made the first one into an anniversary card and then made this one.

Ingredients

7" x 7" White Pearl card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Sentiment - Tattered Lace Stamps (embossed with silver emb. powder)
Tattered Lace - 'Quilted Cushion' Embossing Folder
Spellbinders Dies - 'Devine Floral' (middle of the card) die
Le Crea' Multi Dies - Flower 006 die
Tattered Lace Dies - Paradise Ferns die
Creative Expressions Dies - Delicate Daisies die (open and complete petals)
Blue, Green, Lilac card - stash
Pearls - ancient stash

Hope you can join in with us over at IntAAS, we've not had too many entries just lately which is such a shame, Jane Bradshaw, our 'big cheese' really does her best with design and info on our blog.  Granted we don't have prizes 'cos we are now a Just For Fun challenge blog, but we still choose a DT Favourite and also DT Top 3 .... and our badges are well worth displaying!!!

So come on peeps, let's see your creations.

Big hugs to you all.

Lots of love Suexxx
