Blogger's Challenge - Week #13 - Embossing


For this week's challenge we are to make a card that has an embossed component. I chose a card that I cased from a swap that I received at SU Leadership last Jan. I think this is my favorite embossing effect and looks very elegant.


The effect is acheived by using vanilla ink on vanilla cardstock with clear embossing powder. It took me quite a while to figure out how to get the same effect as the swap card that I received. When I used vanilla embossing powder on vanilla ink - the result was a much whiter embossed tree.


The tree is from the Lovely as a Tree set! A Stampin' Up classic!
