Anything Goes Embossing With A Twist of Plaid – Honestly I think I should have called this card the forgotten element. Yesterday I did a card for another challenge that when I began, I thought would also work for this one too. When it was ready to post I realized that I had forgotten an element necessary to include it for this challenge. This morning I began this card and was ready to upload when I realized once again I had forgotten the same element. Not wishing to begin again I searched for a solution that I could make work and while it wasn’t quite what I planned it at least fits the challenge now.
I started with the Kraft card front to which I added the debossed side layer of gold. Folder used was Tulip frame by Crafts Too. Then I took a scrap piece of DSP and embossed that with the folder called Brocade by Craft Concepts and added it over the gold piece. Using a new die from MFT called piece of my heart, and some striped paper I had created using scraps a while ago, I die cut the heart and embossed it with the same folder as the DSP layer. I glued this to a piece of white CS and added that to a small piece of the mat gold. Offsetting it slightly I glued it on top of the rest. I added a ribbon and some flat back pearls to the heart layer. Then I came to the sentiment which I initially stamped onto white CS and added at the bottom. It was at that point that I realized I’d forgotten the plaid. To find something that would work and not clash or detract from the rest took me some time. I went through all my DSP and all my scraps before coming up with what you see here. I stamped the sentiment from Friendly Hello by StampinUP using Vintage Photo ink onto the plaid and then carefully cut around it so it would fit at the bottom without covering up too much of the rest. Plaid isn’t my go to in any design although I do use it once in a while. Don’t know where my head was at yesterday or this morning – lol.
