Not Even a Second Look...

...Until now! Let me explain. At a recent class I showed my ladies how quick and simple an embossing folder and the Big Shot can make life :) We recreated this card I posted HERE - I love how soft the vellum cardstock Elegant Bouquet embossed overlay looks against Crumb Cake and then I chose the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder with Crumb Cake cardbase again to kreate the cards pictured above.
* Run Crumb Cake through the Big Shot with Vintage Wallpaper
* Now, grab your Brayer!!! - Ink up your brayer and with gentle pressure glide over your embossed card - gorgeous right???? AND SO EASY!!! The card on the left is brayered with Early Expresso, the card on the right with Soft Suede. Enter title here - At this point one of my ladies said, 'I never even gave this folder a second look, until now'.
* Kept the details/elements simple to make for a quick kreation!
NEW Chantilly Crochet Trim tied in a bow, or go for the overlay look like my Pretty in Pink Satin ribbon peeking behind the delicate vintage trim finished off with a NEW Antique Brad. I couldn't resist a few NEW Basic Pearls as well.
* Sentiments punched out in Ovals, edges distressed using my Dauber and Early Expresso or Soft Suede ink, matted with a Pretty in Pink Scalloped Oval also distressed with my Dauber.

Easy Peasy, makes for a quick and purdy card! Hope you like it and it inspires you to give things a second look :)

Thanks so much for stopping in for a little dose of me :) I'm anxious to let you know whats been going on in my non stamping life :) and hopefully get back to stamping regularly real soon.

Really pretty and simple! On my computer the ink on the card on the left side is coming through like Night of Navy...could be another ink choice!!
