This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is: embossing!
In all honesty, this is my 3rd attempt at a card for this challenge. I decided the first 2 that I made were pretty, but definitely not clean-and-simple. I can't seem to heat-emboss without adding layers of stuff on top. You'll see what I mean when I share the other cards... Anyhow, for this challenge, I dry-embossed instead:
I am so in love with this card... and my new camera lens :) I added a 50mm lens to my Canon and the blurred background it gives is just the sweetest for photographing my cards... I can't wait to learn a bit more of what it can do!
The vintage cream cardstock (PTI) was embossed with an SU embossing folder. It gives such a gorgeous texture! I die-cut an angled label and stamped on it in tumbled glass distress ink with the coordinating image. The sentiment is from a PTI mat stack set. The same vine border that lays horizontally across the card was used to cut melon berry felt, and rolled into that scrumptious flower. Nichole Heady showed how to create one on her blog - it's worth the effort!
