Flower Garden Embossing Folder

By | April 12, 2011

Hi Stampers

Opener 
The Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (from the Summer Mini catalog) adds a deep embossed look to the Rich Razzleberry Card Stock.  If you are looking for interest, dimension and texture to single layers of card stock, try Stampin' UP!'s beautiful embossing folders.

Without-Bleach 
When I first completed this card, I was not happy with it.  It just didn't look finished.  Then I while I was getting my daily fill of blogs I follow, I came across Diana Gibbs latest card where she used bleached on colored card stock.  I added a few bleached highlights to my card and I was a lot happier with it.  Tell me what you think?  Do you prefer the first one or the 2nd one (with bleach).

    Thanks Lisa – I wasn’t sure at first, but the more I look at it, the better I like it!

    Wow! I couldn’t believe the difference in the 1st card & 2nd! I kept scrolling back & forth. When I saw your first one,… I thought to myself that you were just too hard on yourself, because I loved the simple elegance of #1! Then, I scrolled down to see the bleached effect difference in #2 & totally loved it! What an awesome way of showing how a little technique can make a big difference! Thanks for all you teach us, Rachel! You rock!
