This card uses Love & Affection and the new copper embossing powder! The “split” is being shown all over the place and it’s really easy to do. My card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored in half to create a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 front. I want my designer paper to end up being 4 x 5 1/4 – so I cut it at 4 x 4 1/4 and made a diagonal cut through it and spread it apart 1 inch. That gives me the space to stamp and emboss in the open space. This card was shown at On Stage. Hugs, Fran
Nothings says “Thank You” like a golden pineapple! This wonderful background stamp was stamped in Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. The gold sequin are a fun embellishment.
The card stock is the Shimmery White card stock paired with Gold Foil. Again, I stamped the sentiment on vellum. (I’m seeing a pattern here!) Hugs, Fran
Another Double embossing card, this time using Silver on Silver. Isn’t it pretty? I can’t for the life of me remember which set the “Thank You” came from – do you know? Oops – it’s Four You!
The little roses are made with the 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch and the leaves are the from Bird punch.

This is the same technique as here – using a card layout by Dawn Olchefske – with a lot of sparkle. For this one I used the Modern Mosaic embossing folder and Pool Party embossing powder. I added this pretty bit of bling to both sides of the card flap. This card design has half of the front cut away to make a beautiful gate opening.

The Modern Mosaic looks like a garden lattice! Hugs, Fran
This summer I did a “wow” presentation at a group get together using embossing folders and heat embossing. This idea was inspired by a conversation with Lisa Tedder. I brayered over the Chevron embossing folder with Versamark and then ran Silver Glimmer paper through the Big Shot. Immediately pour embossing powder (I used the now retired Melon Mambo on this one) over the embossing and heat emboss. You get a beautiful background! Double embossing!
Stamp Set – Perfect Pennant
Card stock – Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Ink – Versamark, Melon Mambo
