Embossed Heart .....

I've been wandering around You tube looking for inspiration! There is so much out there it can be very time consuming but I'm interested in finding new techniques to try out.  I've seen a number of crafters embossing only part of the card - I've used the technique to create a border on a card but never to emboss an image in the centre leaving the surrounding card flat. That is until today!  It has taken numerous attempts to get it to work (I stopped counting at 5!). The final version is not perfect but neither am I! 

The challenge this week at "Less is More" is to create a 'one layer card' with the theme of 'Hearts'.  So using this idea and the embossing technique this is the finished card:

This is a square card (5"x 5") and I used the following:

Stampin Up Ink: Regal Rose and Strawberry Blush 
Clearly Besotted Stamp Sentiment
Pampered Pets Embossing Folder
Sizzix Framelits Heart Die.



  1. This is beautiful Elaine! I think I shall have to go find out how to do that! :)
