Old-Fashioned Dry-Embossing

Old-Fashioned Dry-Embossing

As I was using my Punches Plus Classy Brass Template to do some piercing yesterday, I realized I don’t use the edges of the template near as much as what’s “inside.” So on this card, I dry-embossed along the edges of the Whisper White panel. I had to use this sentiment from Beautiful Life one last time before it retires, and it was inked up with two different markers to highlight certain words.

The daisy flowers were cut out with the Big Shot, and I used the colors from Kristina’s 38th Color Inspiration challenge. I added a Ruby Red brad, a 1/4″ and a 1/2″ circle to the center of each flower, and also did some sponging on the white circles.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I haven’t gotten many of the classy brass templates, but I think Punches Plus is in my near future. This is really pretty.
