Emboss it! Passion for Papertrey Challenge

Happy Friday!

Today I am sharing a card I have made for the current challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey Blog. The challenge is to emboss. This is a technique that I enjoy incorporating into my cards.

For this card I decided I wanted to use my Turning a New Leaf set. I used the larger of the leaves & embossed it with white EP onto Spring Rain CS. I love how crisp it turned out! I then used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss the white matt layer, the most used embossing folder in my collection! As Karl put it "Oh you do use your Cuttlebug then!"

I then decided to use the larger of the flowers from Beautiful Blooms. I stamped the first layer of the flower onto Sweet Blush CS using Sweet Blush Ink. I then used the second layer of the stamp & stamped over the top using Berry Sorbet Ink. I overlapped the petals slightly.

A Berry Sorbet button and some Berry Sorbet swiss dots satin ribbon added the extra colour I wanted. The sentiment is from Cupcake Collection and also stamped in Berry Sorbet Ink. A few pearl gems added the finishing touch!
