Classy Cards N Such: Beautiful Embossing Folders

Hi everyone! It's time once again for me to share my latest card created for Classy Cards N Such.
I know you all have a collection of embossing folders and my collection keeps growing. Some of them are becoming more intricate and elegant like the one I used on today's card.

If you are short on time, one of the easiest ways to design a quick card is by using an embossing folder. Some of them, like the Spring embossing folder I used here from Crafts Too, have designs that are more than just a repeated pattern. By adding black pearls to the centers of the embossed flowers and in the flower buds, I enhanced the actual design and gave it added dimension. 
By adding Black Soot Distress Ink to the edges of my vanilla card base I gave the illusion of another layer while pulling the black, azalea, and vanilla color scheme all together. All that's left to do is add a sentiment in a spot that doesn't take away from the intricate design, which for me was the lower right hand corner.  
Next time you need a card in a pinch, try using an embossing folder for a quick and elegant design!
If you don't own any embossing folders why not stop by the Classy Cards N Such Online Store and browse their excellent selection. If you find some you like remember to use my discount and take 10% off your order with the following code: JENNIPHER-10

Challenges that inspired this card:


Sentimental Sundays 74: Step out of your comfort zone ➦Did you happen to notice there is no patterned paper on my card? That's way out of my comfy zone!

Paper Play Challenges: White + one ➦ I used a vanilla card base with a shimmery pink cardstock. Not sure if my black pearls count as part of the colors or not.

Stampin' Royalty Challenge: KISS: Keep It Simple Sweetie ➦ This was definitely a simple card to make.

Stamps R Us Challenge : Birthdays ➦ My scalloped oval is stamped with "Celebrating You" from Verve.

Thanks for dropping by and sharing your thoughts with me.
I also wanted to say that I have been super busy as I try to put on the final touches of the Perfect Sentiments Challenge Blog which will launch this coming Wednesday. So, I know that I owe many of you some return comments and  I will get to them I promise. I also hope you will come join us and play along as we do have a prize for our launch challenge!
Have a blessed weekend.

  2. You have succeeded in doing a simple but very effective card. I love inking the edges and distressing the paper you used quite a lot and with the pearls put well you have set brilliant accents.

  3. Wonderful idea for a quick card. I've only used white/vanilla for embossing, need to step out of my comfort zone and use a color. Thanks for the inspiration. ~ Abby
