Topic: Dry Embossing
OK, I signed up to do a Purple and White swap on one of my lists and then sat down and created this card. I used purple printed cardstock for the background and ran it through the Cuttlebug folder to add the script. Then I sanded it to expose the white core. Next are two torn pieces of white mulberry paper with white paper behind to intensify the contrast.
The flower was cut off of a commercial card and mounted with 3D glue dots. Then I made the text block with torn purple card, white rub-ons, and a Cuttlebugged green paper, sanded. This is mounted 3D also.
I looked up who I was supposed to send it to for the swap and discovered my BIG mistake - it was for the wrong group! The Purple and White swap was for a Paper Embroidery group and my card has no embroidery on it. RATS!
Oh well, it works for another groups' swap that was due - one that requires some kind of embossing. Since I used dry embossing for the background I'm all set.
