When I saw this weeks Stamping 411 Sketch I couldn't wait to get started.
Straight away I knew I wanted to work with my Embossing Folders and I included three different ones on the card I made.
The first section (top left) was a piece of Lap of Luxury DSP that I ran through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The second section (top right) was Very Vanilla card that I ran through the Lattice Square Embossing Folder. I used my brayer first to ink the raised cross pattern on the embossing folder in Concord Crush ink. I love this effect, though I did end up with inky fingers!
The bottom section was Very Vanilla card run through the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder and then I used a sponge dauber with Concord Crush ink the highlight the raised image.
I finally finished it all off my stamping the friends image from Cute by the Inch (Level 2 Hostess) in Concord Crush, punching it out with 1 1/4" Square Punch and mounting it on a piece of Pretty in Pink punched with the 1 1/2" Scallop Square.Everything was mounted onto a Pretty in Pink card base, the sentiment was added with Dimensionals.
