Thinking Of You

Hi everyone!! Have you ever found yourself in need of a card and have about 5 minutes to get one done? Well, recently I was in that position and managed to throw something together. It's not the prettiest card in the world it's still a nice card and worked out just as I had hoped. 

While I have a ton of dry embossing folders, I never use them as a main focal point. I normally use them to add a touch of dimension as a panel mostly hidden under my focal point. However, for this card I used a new folder that I recently purchased that's meant to be the focal point....

DeNami recently put all of their folders on sale for $3/each AND I was lacking a couple of dollars to qualify for free shipping so I added the Scrolls embossing folder to my order. Like I mentioned before, I would normally not use this type of folder but at the time of purchase I was thinking that I just needed to try something new and here was a great opportunity.

I started with a navy A2 sized card base. I cut a light blue panel and ran it through my Vagabond with the embossing folder. Then I took a scrap of white cardstock and ran that through the embossing folder too. All I wanted was the center so using a scrap was just perfect. I cut out the center panel and stamped the sentiment from the new Heartfelt Blessings clear stamp set in the center. It looked like it needed a little something so I stamped one of the little "extras" from the set at the bottom of the panel. I attached the light blue panel to the card base then using foam tape attached the white sentiment panel. To finish it all off I added a navy grosgrain ribbon/bow and some cupped flower sequins from Paper Sweeties with a little Stickles in the center.

Like I said...super easy card that took about 5 minutes and I was able to rush out the door on time! I'm thinking I could get to like using dry embossing folders as a main focal point! ;)

  1. This is a pretty card Tina! I love dry embossing folders, they can be the focal point or they can be an accent. That's what I love about them they are so versatile and quick! Hugs, Brenda
