Merry Monday #157 - Embossing

Hello friends.  Playing along with Bonnie's challenge over at Merry Monday's this week, and we are being asked to emboss...either dry or wet.  I had gotten a Spellbinders embossing folder just before Christmas this past year and only had the chance to make one quick card with it, so I pulled it out to use for this challenge.  I'll apologize up front for my photography, but absolutely no sun this week, so just imagine my card a bit brighter than what it is showing.  Take a look:




I used a 5" square panel to emboss the wreath on, and then lightly distressed it with Tim Holtz's "Antique Linen" Distress ink.  The part that you really can't see in the pictures is that I sprayed this layer with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, so IRL there's a really soft shimmer to the card.  I added a bunch of champagne colored pearls for the berries and the joy die cut (PTI) is from gold mirror cardstock.  I layered this panel with more of the gold mirrored cardstock and then a white card base.  A simple gold ribbon and gold cord finished off my card.


You can check out all the other cards from the Design Team and other players right here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
