Thank You For Touching My Life

Hi Bloggers.

Has anyone tried Sue's Wax Paper Embossing Folder Technique? You can see her tutorial here. It looks so effective that I just had to give it a go and here's the result -

For my background I followed Sue's tutorial with the Couture Creations Chiaro Embossing Folder and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment (great sentiment, I think) from the Creative Expressions Whimsical Floral Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Navy Viola Blaze Embossing Powder from the Brights Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire using Cut n Dry Foam. I cut a Fancy Postage Edge Die out of Cobalt card and at the emboss stage I added the Couture Creations Alora Embossing Folder.

I stamped 4 flowers from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Navy Viola Blaze Embossing Powder. I cut them out with scissors and then inked them with Chipped Sapphire using Cut n Dry Foam.

I wrapped some White Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon around the card and added some Royal Blue American Seam Binding on top. I tied a bow with the two ribbons and added a Medium Circle Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Hope you'll give this technique a try.

Thanks for stopping by.
