I have been playing around with my new Big Shot and SU's Texturz Plates. I wanted to have some samples for my stamp clubs to look at, so I decided to start with some Mother's & Father's Day cards. My first card uses the Eyelet plate, embossed on the pink DP from Candy Lane:
Here's a closeup first:
And here's the card:
The sentiment is stamped in Baja Blue on vellum cardstock and layered over a piece of Whisper White, then embellished with some of SU's new satin ribbon! It is so incredibly soft and smooth! I finished it with some felt flowers and filigree brad. I think the next time, I will emboss the sentiment....it is not as clear as I'd like it to be.
For my Father's Day card, I used the Harlequin Texturz plate along with the saw from Totally Tool. This was a fun card to make, and my DH was totally entranced by the fact that it was embossed, there was a big grommet (his word) on it, and that the sentiment was stamped in two colors!!! Doesn't take much, does it?!!!LOL!
The embossing really does add an interesting touch to your cards, and I am looking forward to playing some more! This also will be for the Diva Coffee Break Design Challenge, which is to use your Big Shot!
