Embossed Flowers

I saw the sketch at Cardabilities, and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.  


I love dry embossing on white daisy paper, so I wanted to create some vintage looking flowers for this card.  I did this by die-cutting the flowers with my Artbooking cartridge, and then embossing them with my quatrefoil folder before rolling them up with my quilling tool.  When doing this, you end up with quite a pretty flower!


There is a lot of discontinued product on this card (Florentine paper, Mocha Gems, Garden Wooden Shapes, Frosted Assortment).  I really wanted to show the technique and yet another way to use your embossing folders!


Thanks for stopping in today, and I hope that your day is blessed!

Beautiful card and wonderful flowers! I love dry embossing and am so happy that CTMH now carries some of them. Next I think they should have coordinating stamps and folders--wouldn't that be cool?
