Frosted Designs hosts a Fabulous Friday Challenge which challenges you to use new techniques and products. This week's challenge was to use embossing. I love embossing! I love the fun little folders and my Big Shot to run them through. It brings such a great texture to a card, layout element or even letters.
I just made two new cards. I really feel like the embossed background gives them that extra oomph.
The first is a Thank You card for my daughter's wedding shower. I embossed the background and then I punched out a couple of purple scallops, embossed them and cut into them to make them look like flowers.
The second card is a Christmas card. I made these for my step mom for her birthday. First I embossed the background paper, then I rubbed it lightly with a white stamp pad. I love the look that it gave the whole card! It gave it that sort of old fashioned look. I embossed the red solid paper too.
