Embossing

Got a couple of new sizzix embossing folders from the Dome so I've been trying them out. The frame one is fab and the glittered rub ons fit perfectly inside them - thanks Maz. I have now ordered a set for myself!!!! The first layer is embossed onto black card and then rubbed over with gold brilliance ink. The second layer is green leaf coloured card with like a gold shimmer to it, again purchased at the Dome and run through the bug using another new folder. Then I sanded over the top and distressed the edges with my paper distresser. Third layer, a piece of plain black card run throught he bug using the swiss dots embossing folder and rubbed over with gold brilliance ink. Fourth layer just a piece of plain green card and finally mounted the whole lot onto a piece of plain black mount board and added a piece of green organza ribbon.

Hi Sam! Thank you for visiting my blog and your lovely comment that led me back to your blog. I love your embossing piece...really gorgeous and glad to see you are getting hooked on the Cuttlebug envelopes...I know I love them, and there are such a great variety of them. I think of you often since I received your beautiful art gift. I guess you are looking forward to skiing again this year. No snow in our part of Canada yet. I have joined your followers list so I can return more often. I invite you to join me at my followers list as well. Be well. Special hugs, Gayle.
