Special card for Special Occasions!

I recently borrowed some sizzix embossing dies from my bestie Kim to have a play with... I needed to make a Wedding card for my nephew and a Birthday card for my mum. I had seen a technique that I wanted to have a go at and this is what I have come up with!
This first one is for my mum's Birthday

This one is the Wedding card

and these two were just for fun!

I have used Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla and Kraft cardstock and ink. Along with the gorgeous Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, the eyelet border punch and the En Francais background stamp.
To get this effect with the embossing die, all you have to do is ink directly onto the die itself! Then very carefully put your cardstock into the folder and then through the Bigshot. Each side of the die you ink will give a different image when embossed. I think both came out beautifully! (then make sure you wash and dry the die when your done! I just ran it under warm water)

Give it a go and enjoy the results yourself. xx

  1. Jeanne, These are really beautiful. I love your combination of En Francais and the embossed squares in Rich Razzleberry. Very elegant, hope they liked them very much. I would. Nerida
