Margaret, a participant in our Clean and Simple challenge "Less is More" submitted a card where the letters were embedded in the embossing and I thought it looked super. I've tried it here, using die-cuts from my Cuttlebug Typewriter alphabet and a Stampin' Up embossing folder.
One thing I wasn't really prepared for, was how much the card shrinks in the process using this particular folder. Having cut the strip to size I had to reduce the size of the card to accommodate the smaller dimensions of it, once embossed.
Having looked again at Margaret's card, I realise that she didn't quite use this method... she used some letters as a mask and inked the embossing folder... but her cards gave me inspiration anyway! DO take a look at her fabulous work.
This gorgeous splash butterfly is from Indigo Blu and I love it.
I've been doing lots of experimenting with photographing mainly white cards and I haven't cracked it yet, despite trying to enhance the pics in Picasa... sorry about this one.
I 've just bought a couple of sets of Grand Nesties and as yet haven't come up with a storage solution. I keep my regular thin dies in stacked CD cases, which I find really convenient... but the Grand ones are a trifle mega.
