Today, I am sharing my The Crafting Cafe DT card with you all, and this month we've been embossing. Now, those of you that have been paying attention know that I'm new to the whole embossing thing, and only actually own two embossing folders. (Ok, that's not entirely true any more... I received some border embossing folders as a magazine freebie a couple of days ago!)
For this card I used the same embossing folder I did before, only in a completely different way (keep your eyes peeled to see the other embossing folder at work in a few days' time...).
Instead of using the folder to emboss the background of my card like I did before, I instead chose to emboss some other elements on the card.
The image I used is of course another Stamping Bella, and I decided to use core'dinations cardstock, so I could sand the hearts down after embossing them!
Here's a close-up of one of the hearts:
The "love" sentiments were cute with a set of Cheery Lynn Designs dies, and I shadow layered the purple on white to make it stand out more. Naturally, this seemed like a good time to break out the Stickles too! Hey, it's a wedding card. wedding cards need sparkle. And pearls. In this case of the liquid variety.
And a close-up of the image...
She has Stickles on the flower in her hair, and the ones in the bouquet too. Didn't I say a wedding card needs sparkle? ;-)
And the wedding colour is of course purple. All the best weddings feature purple. Can I offer a virtual cookie to anyone who can guess what colour featured at my wedding? ;-)
I wish I could tell you where the paper is from, but I got it in a pack of random papers, so could be anything. It is glitter embossed though, which makes it especially perfect for the challenge!
So... If you were thinking about having a go at embossing, now would be a good time! We'd love to see you over at The Crafting Cafe!
