I've made a couple of cards using some of my forgotten embossing folders - great to give them an airing and it's always a lovely surprise to re-discover goodies that have been neglected.
My first card is for my slowly growing Christmas stash.
I wanted to keep it really crisp and snowy white with just a nod to some traditional red.
I used three different embossing folders and a bauble/label die that I really had forgotten all about - one of the first dies I ever bought, way back when my cuttlebug was a brand spanking new toy.
Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said Christmas
Inks: SU, real red
My second card is more of a wedding/anniversary type card and uses one of my all time favourite stamped sentiments - this quote regularly crops up throughout my scrapbooking albums.
I was trying to address the spectacular part of the challenge title. So I embossed onto some luxury pearlescent card and matted it onto a sparkly already embossed background paper. I think it looks quite glam!
Stamp: Inkylkicious, twinchie
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Paper/Card: First Edition, noir & chic; pearlescent card from my stash
Now this is the part where I say - over to you. But before you go grab your embossing gear spend a little time soaking up the DT gorgeousness that is waiting for you at AAA Cards - you'll be properly impressed!

Wonderful cards, Jane. I love your snowy white Christmas Card... the red pops so beautifully and I love the hanging ornaments. I need an engagement card, and I have the EF you used in your second card. It is perfect for a wedding or engagement. Thanks for the reminder. Your card is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Simply stunning Jane. Both unique and fabulous. Great to see a Christmas card there too and love the white on white with just the hint of red on the twine. SArah xReplyDelete

Oh! I really like all the white-on-white. Beautiful and very sentimental too, I think.ReplyDelete
Love the use of embossing folders - especially on that pearlescent paper - so pretty and and that sentiment is beautiful! JillReplyDelete
Love how you've done the embossing into the pearlescent card. I get mixed results when I try that...A very glam card. The Noel card is so clean, fresh and modern and I just love it!ReplyDelete
