We're using embossing folders, but emboss it any which way you like: paste, dry, heat - go wild.
The only embossing folders I own are from my days as a Stampin' Up demo, hee hee. I haven't reached for one in awhile.
I used two different folders: one for the striped background and one for the frame around the penguins.
Once embossed, I painted the raised stripes with barn door distress paint. It's a bright red paint, but my application was so light that it looks more pink.
I finally inked up "love quotes" and they are the most adorable things ever. The sentiment is from another ME set, "hello." The tiny words are perfect for fitting into tight places.
I hope you like my card!
