Week 6 Challenge - Card No. 3

Hello, Crafters.

This is the third card in my Using Embossing Folders challenge.

I don't know if this technique has a name or not, I'm just going to call it Topper Embossing!

I started by stamping the butterfly using the Watercolour Wings Stamp Set and die cut it using the Bold Butterfly Framelits Die.

I adhered the butterfly to the top layer of Whisper White cardstock using glue stick.

I then embossed it using the Decorative Dots Embossing folder.

I have to admit that I'm not particularly keen on this embossing folder but it does what I need it to do.

If you look closely at the second photograph, you can see that this is a "topper" that has been embossed onto the card, rather than a butterfly that has been stamped directly onto the cardstock and then embossed.

I was really pleased with how I created the sentiment "flower" which is very appropriate for a butterfly card.

I decided to make another card the same but to adhere the sentiment before embossing.

 Photograph 4 shows what the sentiment looked like after embossing and I definitely didn't like the look!

To remedy this, I stamped another sentiment and punched it out with my 1.5" circle punch. Then I adhered it into the centre of the "flower".

Much better! 
I will be posting several more photographs of these three cards on my Facebook page so you can see completed versions of all three cards if you'd like to.
In the meantime, until tomorrow and card 4, happy crafting!


Ooops! I didn't mean to click on Publish - oh well, never mind! Barring another mistake, my next post will be on Friday morning! LOL! Happy crafting. JanB
