Fancy Edges

Dry embossing just adds a little extra flair to a card -- somehow I find myself reaching for the Fiskars ShapeBoss before any stamps. That's probably a shocker to many of you out there -- especially since stamping and colouring is such a big part of card making. But I like the other means and ideas too. And dry embossing -- there's so much you can do with it!! :)


This card is pretty basic (kind of my style), but I love the tulip embossing in the background! It's the first time I've attempted to use these shapes, and I'm loving the look!!!

I've noticed a lot of cards out there have layers of punched borders --- and I've always loved it! I just never got around to actually trying it. So I guess this card is me trying a few new ideas -- and I'm so happy with how it turned out! :) TFL
