Hiding In My craft Room #149 'Emboss It'

It's the weekend and time for another Hiding In My Craft Room Challenge.  This week we want you to Emboss It.
This can be any kind of Embossing! Wet or Dry! You can use embossing powder, an embossing folder, a bone folder with a scorpal, or go old school with a stylus and stencil!
Or if you don't have any of these, how about some pre-embossed paper!
Here is my card for the week

This is a new 3D embossing folder from Spellbinders.  I used watercolor paper because this is a very deep cut pattern and the watercolor paper has more weight.  The color was placed on the paper by selecting several Distress Inks and applying to the paper.  I also used a glimmer mist at the end.  Two fun butterflies and a ribbon bow were added for the finishing touch.  I wanted the design to show for this card so for right now I have no sentiment on the front but that could be added later if needed. 
I hope you find a way to do some embossing this week.
Thanks for stopping by


  1. Hi Nancy - I popped by to comment on your recent creation for 613 - a really cute take on the challenge twist! And then I saw this embossed card... a really elegant & classy design - I like the colors over the embossing and especially the lacy ribbon and the lacy butterflies. Very nice indeed!

    1. Ginny, Thanks so much for your comment. After looking around I see that my 613 Card never posted. Not sure why or what blogger did with the draft, but it's there now. Thanks again for your comment.

  2. What a pretty card! I love what you did with the embossing... Lovely!
