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.
