Lots of Swirls!

Using this Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder made me think of this tree stamp from Verve. You can't really see them, but it has swirls like the folder. I stamped it with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and used a marker to color it. The sentiment is stamped with the same ink and is from Papertrey Ink. I matted with olive cardstock and mounted on foam squares for dimension. For the background, I brayered olive ink on the folder before embossing. I matted it with olive, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Boy that stamp & embossing folder do compliment each other. The addition of the olive ink to the folder makes the embossing really pop! Great card.

I agree with Sheri that this would make a nice card for the guys you need to send cards to. And I like the way you carried the Olive color all the way through.
