Embossing 101

The title should say it all! I'm fairly new to the world of embossing and learning more each day. I've been trying to add it to my creations here and there to give them a little more flare and dimension. Today's card is no exception. I saw this quote on numerous cards, layouts, and in magazines and couldn't wait until Mother's Day to use it. So here we have an early Mother's Day Card! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out, glittery, sparkly, elegant, really just how I envisioned! So I've decided to enter it in the Paper Sundaes Challenge #61-Embossing and Amber's Crafts and Stuff Challenge #1 Stashbuster/Anything Goes.

I embossed the background with D'vine Swirl and since I'm not completely familiar with embossing powders and inks, I decided to stickle the entire thing! Probably not the most time or cost effective but I think it worked :) The frame is from Sports Mania of all cartridges and I used the Recollections border punch. The quote is computer generated, matted and pop-dotted. I added the bow and some doodling to finish it off.


  1. Very pretty card. The quote is so sweet. It makes me miss my mom.
