We are back with another challenge at Less is More and I am having lots of fun playing along as a guest designer during this special birthday month! For this challenge we want to see your CAS designs which feature dry embossing:
I have to admit that I don't use embossing on my cards very often and don't have many embossing folders although you can also emboss dies. I always like it when I see it on other peoples' cards but never seem to think of doing it myself! However, I got a really sweet embossing folder free with a papercrafting magazine and decided it was perfect for this challenge :)
I embossed the folder on kraft card and added some small die cut white flowers (from Concord and 9th). I also added a pair of chipboard birds and hearts which I painted white and embossed to create a glazed effect. The sentiment is white embossed and from Avery Elle. Finally I added a few dots with a white pen. I hope you like the simple effect of kraft and white.
Whilst rummaging around for things to emboss I found a script folder and made this too:
I embossed the folder on grey card and cut a panel for the card front. I used some gilding wax to highlight the texture and edged the grey panel with some gold mirri. The feather die is from Spellbinders and I gold embossed the top. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I added a few splatters and sequins to finish.
I shall link this card up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is Take Note and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge to use a die.
I hope you like these embossed designs and take the time to play along with us this month. Remember that if you play along in both of the February challenges at LIM you will be in for a chance of winning two of my range of stencils.....you can find them on Folksy.
