LAYERED HEART

Happy Little Stampers has a challenge this month to design a card using the embossing folder technique.  If you are unfamiliar with this there are multiple links on their blog challenge.  CAS on Sunday's challenge is "valentine" and this will qualify for them also.


For the ef technique, I sponged abandoned coral and picked raspberry distress inks onto the folder, spritzed with water and pressed the paper onto the folder.  When dry, I die cut the hearts.  The Concord & 9th Layers of Love dies come with the both the floral outline and the stripe.  Adhered the stripe to the back and then popped it all up with some foam tape onto the card base.  Carefully inserted some clear sequins under the stripes and done.  Had never tried this technique and it really is a fun way for a different watercolor look.  

Thanks for visiting today and love reading your comments.

  4. This is a beautiful card, Betty. I love the soft, pretty pinks. I've gone back and forth all week about whether or not I want this Concord & 9th die. I keep telling myself I don't really need it, but then I see everyone's beautiful creations and I tell myself, "Yes you do need it!" Ha! Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog. ;-)
