Embossing Folders!


The "Lets Squash it #5" is to "Love and Red" so as Valentines day is gone this year I decided to make an Anniversary card for my husband.  I used this really old Cuttlebug embossing folder and the Distress Oxide to create an Ombre effect.

I then mounted this onto a red card base and added the different die cut hearts.  The sentiment is part of a Simon Says Happy Birthday cut and then adding the computer generated Anniversary.

This challenge is making me think more about all the embossing folders I have and using them more!!

I will also add this card to the Love Flickr Group challenge,

Another week in Lockdown and its beginning to get frustrating, I was lucky enough to have my first vaccination last week so fingers crossed we can get back to some sort of normal soon.

Have a great week

such a pretty card Sally. Hopefully life will get back to normal as quickly as possible. I can't imagine how hard it's been for the UK. Here in NZ we have been doing very well but 3 community cases has caused a 3 day lockdown. take care.

What a wonderful ombre effect, perfect with this folder and the touch of god on he die cut wording lends to whole thing an opulent air - love it! My hubby has had his first jab, patiently waiting for my turn now!
