Lots of embossing

Beautiful colours with the added challenge of embossed flowers.

Another new challenge to me, this one with dry embossing.  So, this card has 2 embossing techniques, something I've not done before.

Here is a close up of the flowers, love the effect. I found the diecut in a long forgotten box at the back of the shelf and thought the colour was pretty close to Kraft.  Really should have a rummage more often, it's amazing what you find.

What you need
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics Olive, Red;  SU white
Stamps - SU Growing Green;  PTI Damask Designs (sentiment)
Ink - SU Real Red, Old Olive;  Versamark
Embossing Powder - Coloriser clear
Die cut - Five Kids and a Dog
Embossing Folder - Sizzix Swiss Dots


  1. Hi Cassandara, lovely card, I really like the fern and the die cut off to the side. Lovely to see you, a fellow Queenslander!, playing along with us this week at the Friday Mashup.
