Deco Flower - Magical Monday

This weeks challenge over at There's Magic In The Air was to emboss (heat or dry) or score something on your card. I wanted my card to be more contemporary so I leaned towards that. Leigh Anne knows just how much I LOVE to emboss, heat embossing is my favorite, but I love how easy dry embossing has become with all the folders now.

So, I decided this image would be a great image to duplicate so I made three to place on this first card. I colored these with my Bic Mark-its. I then added that gold heat embossing around the edges of each image. Then I chalked the back ground with the some colors in the image. I basicially just showcased the images. I placed black stickles on the center of the flower and the dots above it, but that is hard to tell. I dry embossed using a cuttlebug tiny bubbles embossing folder. Then just added some gold trim to match the embossing and three black jewels for some detail. This card was extremely hard to photograph, not sure why, but it truly was.

I pretty bascically did the same techniques here with a different design; and of course I just used one image and added the butterfly!

I really wish you could see these in real life, they are so much prettier! Sometimes, I really don't think the camera catches just how beautiful our cards really are, but oh well, you will just have to believe me on this!

This card I made fairly quick for a thank you a while back prior to this challenge. I added a lot of dots around the flower top to this image. I must say I really like this image.

Thanks for stopping by, leave me a measage it certainly MAKES my day!

Both cards are wonderful! My fav is the 3 panel. I love the gold embossing. That is a great idea! Best, Curt

These are all so lovely, Nina! I especially like your trio of flowers card. What a neat way to use the heat embossing -- it really sets off the flowers! You've drawn another terrific image, and I know I'm going to enjoy using it for a long time to come.
