Embossed Daisies


I got nine new embossing folders last week (actually thirteen - seven full size ones and two sets of three smaller ones) so expect to see several embossed cards coming up. :) I finally got a chance to use some of them yesterday.

These daisies are probably meant to be standing up, but I kind of liked them in this orientation. I used markers to color the stems and leaves and flower centers before I embossed them. I cut the embossed piece to normal card front size and layered it onto the card so that the embossing is not visible inside the card. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the butterfly was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I added a couple light green gems and drew the antennae with a marker. EDITED TO ADD: All of my new folders are by Darice.

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

Oh, my goodness, I LOVE this embossing folder! The flowers look fabulous on their sides like that. I didn't stop to think at first that maybe they were intended to be vertical, but they would be great either way. Love how you got a softness to the color by coloring the folder before embossing. I don't have good luck with brayering my folders, but I have some folders I might try this with. Oh, the inspiration! Thanks, Lynette!
