Another All-in-One card and envelope
This is the second card I have made using the new All-in-One Embossing Folder Sets by Cuttlebug. I also embossed a co-ordinating design on the envelope too.
I again used a combination of Beautiful, True Love, Thank You and Bloom & Grow Embossing Folder Sets.
After embossing the central flower design I used ProMarkers and a gold Sakura pen to colour in the image. I mounted this onto a panel of gold card as this co-ordinated with the gold highlights I added to the flower image.
I embossed a border onto a square of green card using various elements from different Embossing Folder Sets. I coloured in the word Beautiful with a gold Sakura pen. All the layers were attached onto a square card blank. Around the edge of the card I added gold dots.
I tried the embossing folder design with different materials. This one (below) I used Core-dinations Black Magic card. After embossing the design I sanded away the top black layer to reveal the pink core colour.
This sample (below) I used just normal blue card. After embossing I added dark blue Adirondack Dimension Pearls and white Liquid Pearls.
For the final sample (below)I used a slightly different design but it's still very effective even left plain as the embossing is very deep and detailed.
