Alphabet Challenge – ‘D’ for Dry Embossing

Hi there. A new challenge is beginning at The Alphabet Challenge. We have reached the letter ‘D’ – and we want to see your Dry Embossing. Here is my card:

I had a piece of green luminous and extremely shiny card stock from when I had been playing with my Craft Box Lumi Spray. I knew I wanted to put an open die-cut on top of it, and this die from Simon Says Stamp seemed perfect – especially as it had an outline die to go with the flower die.

I die cut the outline into the white card stock, then dry embossed using an old Sue Wilson embossing folder. I layeered this on top of the green luminous card with foam pads and inserted the due cut flower through the aperture.

The sentiment is from Thirsty Brush and Co – she has some fabulous sentiments on her stamp sets, and I always seem to find what I’m looking for to suit either my mood at the time – or when I want to send a card to someone with a special and personal thought, with no particular occasion in mind.

It’s been a little difficult to capture the true shine of the green spray, and to capture the embossing at the same time – hence three pictures.

I hope you can come and join us for this challenge. I see the Design Team have put together some fabulous projects for your inspiration. xx
