I used the partial embossing technique on this card as well. It just gives some extra dimension and detail to a card. I kept the card clean and simple and used some scraps of Crate Paper. The die is from Simply Graphic and the sentiment from Papertrey Ink.The current challenge at Addicted to Cas is 'Delicate'. I think this card fits into that challenge because of the embossed background and the delicate branches.

Thanks for coming by!

partial embossing

The silence here at this blog definitely says something about my productivity in the last two months. Yep, I haven't created any card at all. No time, no inspiration, too many other things to do. I don't worry about such periods. Experience tells me that time and inspiration will come back sooner or later. This morning I had a quick look at Pinterest and saw a tutorial by GerJanne. It is about partial embossing. Beautiful technique and this afternoon I gave it a try. I needed a card for a couple from our church who have been married for 40 years. I used an embossing folder from SU, dies from Simply Graphic and Lawn Fawn, the alphabet roller stamps from SU and the splashes are from SU as well.

Thanks, Gerjanne for the tutorial. Very helpful indeed!
By the way, I really am a lurker in blogland at the moment. I'm sure that one day I will have time to read everything and leave you comments. I promise!

Have a lovely Easter weekend!
