Texture and Die Cuts

The craft paper colored card stock that has been
attached to the front of the card was textured by:
1. mist paper to dampen slightly
2. placed on small hail screen at an angle
3. place rubber on PAPER and crank through die cut machine.
I don't know how many time I have tried to emboss and had the paper and
rubber embossing mat positioned wrong.
Embossing sandwich - texture plate, paper then rubber mat.

The Lotus Pendant from Spellbinders is one of my favorites.
Here it has been used twice with the light die cut behind the dark.

The phrase is one of those fantastic ones from
Our Daily Bread Designs. After die cutting the
phrase out in an elongated oval, stamp a light brown or
tan flourish. This flourish is from Basic Grey.
The edges of the oval were very lightly
sponged with a medium brown ink.

Three half pearls are placed in the lower right hand
edge of the oval.

Above is an orangish-rust label that has been
embossed in a new folder from Sizzix. Only part
of the label is on the card base. Note that the edges
of the piece have been sponged in dark brown.

Both sides of the card base have been stamped
with dark brown ink using a Basic Grey flourish.

Our Daily Bread Designs scripture stamp has
been layered onto dark brown card stock.
