Thank you, thank you, thank you for the kind review of Romancing the Swirl! The two debut blog hops last week were a blast and a wonderful way to get an idea of what you like. Today I’m sharing a new card featuring detail embossing and winners are announced below for the folks who left comments on one of the six blogs giving away an Amazing Paper Grace Die Template from one of these releases – your choice from the Vintage Elegance Collection, the Graceful Borders Collection, the Venise Lace Collection, the Chantilly Lace Collection, or the 3d Vignettes Collection.
My Card Today – Detail Embossing
Those who have been around die-cutting for a long time will remember when detail embossing with a non-cut die was more prevalent. It’s a nice alternative, subtle and elegant and I’m sporting it on my card today. For this card, I decided to use A2 Corner Cotillion as an embossed piece instead of a die cut piece.
For this particular card, I started with a 5-1/2″ by 7-1/2″ card base. I layered it with a panel matted in gold and topped with design paper from DCWV Meet Me in Paris. That panel is followed by a panel embossed using A2 Corner Cotillion where I cut an oval aperture in the center. I inserted a smaller oval in the opening so that you could see the design paper underneath. I snagged a new Quietfire Design Sentiment to fill the oval called You Can Do Anything. A bow across the entire card cuts it up so that the length isn’t quite so overwhelming :-)
We typically think to cut a die but I’m always surprised how beautiful detail embossing is. Try it at least once with each large die because I think you’ll be pleased how it automatically extends your options!
