For this weeks challenge we needed to emboss - whether it be dry embossing or embossing with a heat gun, the choice is yours. I choose to do dry embossing. I'm always in need of sympathy cards for my sale baskets, so rummaged through some stamps and embossing folders and this is what I came up with.
This was a fairly quick card to put together once I figured out what I was doing! I used an embossing folder from Darcie (tree), the memory sentiment was stamped on heavy vellum using black stazon, the scallop border at the bottom was a couple of dies from Spellbinder- classic decorative inserts five and classic petal. I love how these edgeabilites all work with one another.
I added a piece of black cording and some pearls along the bottom decorative edge. I think I will make some more of these.
