CAS-ual Friday Challenge: Embossing

Hi all!  Back with you to share my entry for this week's CAS-ual Friday Challenge: Embossing.  This time we needed to make a card that features any type of embossing - dry embossing, heat-set or embossing folders.  I did two types for my card, heat - set and used an embossing folder.

I heat embossed my Hero Arts image on a piece of patterned paper from the new stack from BG : Indie Bloom. I then added a bit of distress ink to the image to bring it out a bit on the paper and to tone down the "brightness" of the paper.  I wanted COLOR in my project, and this paper was perfect for it.  I, then cut the image up into three segments, and added them to a piece of white card stock from Gina K. Designs.  I die cut the image then with my Top Note Die from SU!  I took a piece of vellum card stock and one of my cuttlebug folders and embossed the vellum.  I didn't want to take away the beautiful card base color of Summer Sunrise card stock from PTI, that is why I thought vellum would be a different choice.  I then adhered all of it to my card base, and I had this cute card stock sticker, and added it for my sentiment.  For the final steps, I added some gemstones color by some Copic markers, and some "faux" stitching on the sides with my white gel pen. 

Until next time!!!  Keep smilin'! and creative!
