Just a quick post today as I decided last minute to make a card for a colour challenge which ends in a couple of hours.
I ordered the raspberry plate for my Grand Calibur yesterday and it arrived in this mornings post (how about that for speed and effiency) so I was able to have a go with the embosing folder which I got free with a magazine. I've got a couple of Impressabilities but they don't seem to emboss so well and now I've tried out an embossing folder I can see that I will be adding a few to my shopping list!!
I've used a couple of dies - Cheery Lynn DL112 butterflies and Marianne Creatables LR0129 for the flower - as well as the aforementioned freebie flower & butterfly embossing folder. The turquoise card I've used for the dies and to layer the embossed card onto is some I've had for an absolute age and luckily I had some bits of ribbon which are an exact match. Then I just added a pearl to the centre of the flower and a couple of smaller ones in the top corrner.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Turquoise or Aqua'
Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge Anything Goes' (my 3rd entry)
Deep Ocean challenge 'Letter B' (butterflies) (my 2nd entry)
