Embossing at Allsorts

here is my entry for this week's Allsorts challenge where the theme is Embossing. I embossed the base card with the Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder and a border to fill the gap at the bottom. I then stamped the leaf (Hero arts) Four times in versafine Olympia green, cut out and used sticky pads to lift it up a little. The flower (Crafty Notions) was stamped and coloured with Derwent aquatone pencils before spraying with Creative colour spray (Crafty Notions).
here is a close up of the flower. It is a very simple and quick card, but it has been a hectic week, so I haven't had time for much! Roll on the summer hols and thanks for looking!

  2. Hi Sally.

    This is a very striking card. I love the bright blue of the flower against the white.

  5. It might be simple but just goes to show that sometimes simple is best.
    This is a really elegant card and the embossing sets off the pretty flower perfectly.

  8. Great embossing Sally and love how you used a border to fill the gap. Thats the most annoying thing about those folders, just too small!
