We have a new challenge for you at Less Is More! We continue with our birthday festivities and have some of our alumni DT members creating with us and we also have prizes for you to win... Don't miss any of the fun, the amazing amount of inspiration and prize details, click HERE. Our challenge topic is a fun, but possibly a challenging one:
Dry embossing is something that is maybe not easy to incorporate to CAS designs but that's why we love challenges... They challenge us! :) Let's see what I came up with.
Card 1 Feathers (above)
I've used dry embossing in two ways here:
*I've dry embossed the whole background using a very subtle embossing folder, something that's very suitable for CAS backgrounds.
*The feathers are cut from previously dry embossed card. The feather die was a freebie with a crafting magazine some years ago and I still use it -it actually does some embossing in itself too!
A very simple layout with these feathers + a bit of wash tape and sequins to embellish the card. The Finnish sentiment means "for you". It's a rubber stamp and just impossible to stamp straight, I tell you!!!! I start to think the whole sentiment is somehow "crooked" on the rubber itself! I think this was the first and last time this stamp came out to play...
With this card I'd like to play along at:
Card 2 Flowers (below)
In the detail photo you can see how I've used dry embossing here -just on 1/3 of the card making sure there's lots of white space left. This design is quite detailed but I'm hoping to get away with it, to me it is CAS enough! :) The stamped, Copic colored and die cut flowers come from Poppy Stamps and my currently favorite decorative edge die comes from Lil'Inker.
With this card I'd like to enter:
