Embossed Cross

>> Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe that we are nearing the end of February already?  I don't know about you, but I'm ready for spring to come.  Not only for the flowers, but for more daylight too :)

Anyway, my card today is a monochromatic one with the main image of the Lily Sympathy Cross heat embossed using white embossing powder.  I think using this technique on the card, really shows off the elegance and detail of this image. And, while this is labeled as a sympathy cross, I love this image for Easter time as well :)  I then used a coordinating ink and stamped the Sealed with a Prayer, before cutting it out with my oval die.

To finish the card, all I did was add some layers, one of those being a dry embossed one, and attached everything with some pop dots for a bit of dimension.

Have you had a chance to play along in our weekly challenge?  The theme for this week is "Use a Tag"  Hope to see you there!

Have a great day,

What a wonderful card! Your heat embossing and paper embossing are both terrific! Sealed with a prayer just finished it off!
