My card today features two IOE Embossing Folders.  I used the small square thank you portion of the Thank You Wishes Folder and I used the large dotted border from the Birthday Oval Folder.  I used the Square IOE Plates to isolate the portion of the folders I wanted.  I used a soft bristle brush with antique linen distress ink to enhance the embossing and really make it ‘pop’.

The dotted border embossing was a large rectangle on the embossing plate, but I simply sent the folder through half way, removed it and then flipped the paper around and lined up the dots to continue the pattern to create a square instead.  If you use your imagination, you can come up with even more uses for these embossing folders.

My floral spray was created using the Floral Bouquet Die set from Cheery Lynn Designs.  This is a fabulous set and a ‘must have’ for anyone who loves to create their own paper flowers.  I cut out the different flower and foliage pieces and used a stylus and foam pad to shape the pieces for more dimension.  The flower centers were finished off with a 14mm Faceted Rhinestone Gem and Antique Bronze Gears.
