Embossing Class Card

Hello Everyone

Well this month we did a technique card that used two different Big Shot embossing folders from Stampin' Up!  The first one we embossed the oval image from the Designer Frames, (you get this one and a rectangle in the set). We embossed direct on to the Pool Party card, which gives a very professional finish.

We then stamped the flower image from the Fresh Vintage and punched using the wide oval punch which fits perfectly. A tiny rhinestone finishes the bottom of the card.



Next we stamped a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the same flower image. We stamped several times and then put the cardstock through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folders. You can see a bit easier on the following picture, (I was having lighting problems the day I took these photos!)

Some of us chose to give a distressed finish by daubing with a little Crumb Cake ink.



We finished the project with a greeting from You're a Gem, some co-ordinating Island Indigo ribbon and a couple more rhinestones.

Here is another card I made with a similar scheme...



Hope you like.

Love Elizabeth X
