Same Sketch, Two Cards

Here are two cards from the same design.  The design is to show off the Oval Designer Frame.  The first one appears to be embossed on top with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  Okay – it is, but it’s a seperate piece of Crumb Cake (I cheated!)  I stamped the border image and layered the embossed piece on top.  Then I spritzed the card. 


Stamp Set – Always Elegant
card stock – Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink – Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Etc – Marina Mist 1/8 ribbon, Designer Frame embossing folder, spritzer with Early Espresso Stampin Write Marker, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Wide Oval punch

Same design, different color and stamps – (and a terrible picture – sorry!)

The top piece is done by stamping off to create the two colors.

Stamp sets- Fabulous FLorets, Sincere Salutations
card stock – Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Ink – Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum
Etc – Scallop Border punch, Designer Frame embossing folder,Wide Oval punch, White satin ribbon

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

  1. Hi,Fran!
    TFS these great samples with the Frames Embossing Folder – can’t wait to order mine. Do you have a secret to avoid getting unwanted impressions? E.g., are you using them with NO tabs on your Big Shot Platform? TIA

  2. Hi Sue – If you use the crease pad as your top layer you won’t get an impression (or you’ll get a lesser impression!)  This card was designed before I figured that out and the top section was put there to cover the impression   

  3. Thanks for sharing that tip with us, Fran! (You didn’t need to confess.) Had not heard that one. They will be on my next order.

  4. Beautful cards. Thank you for the tip on how to add embossing to the top half of the card only. I’ve done embossing on the bottom half before but couldn’t figure out how you would do the top. I guess eventually it would have come to me but much easier having someone explain it. Duh!
