AAA Cards - #90 Embossing

A new challenge starts today at AAA Cards and it's a really easy theme and one that I know you'll have no trouble in interpreting - Embossing.

For my card I've used two different embossing techniques: dry embossing with a folder for the main image and heat embossing for the greeting.

Once I'd run the card through my cuttlebug to dry emboss the words I then rubbed a Kaleidacolor ink pad over the top to highlight the embossing. The card was then cut down using a stitched square die and placed onto green cardstock leaving plenty of empty 'white' space around it.

I finished off the card with a white heat embossed sentiment and a trio of black enamel dots.

Embossing: Cuttlebug folder, Happy Birthday; Ranger superfine, white
Inks: Kaleidacolor, Caribbean Sea
Die: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables
Card: SU, emerald envy
Embellishments: black pearls from my stash
