Fun with Embossing

From Adriel:

I saw a card on SplitCoast a couple of weeks ago and loved it! Click HERE to see the card I CASEd.

As you can see, I pretty much copied it almost exactly!! I loved it, like I said! HA! =D
I'm still getting used to my Big Shot and when I did this, I didn't get a very good impression with the embossing plates. I have since learned that if you put a couple more layers in the sandwich, the impression is much better, and I have tried it and it does work! =)

After looking at my first card, I decided it would make more sense to have a butterfly on flowers, so I used my Birds & Blooms Sizzlet dies to make flowers and then embossed them.

I made the butterfly by folding card stock in half and cutting out the shape and unfolding it and then applying pastels onto it. I adhered it to the card with a glue dot. =)

Anway, enjoyed myself! =D
