Dry Embossing Mid Week Motivation

Hi everyone it's Suzi b again with some dry embossing inspiration... hope you like it.
The idea came to me when I was searching through my12x12 papers trying to find inspiration for my Granddaughter's birthday card when I came across  the paper pictured below whichis  from DCWV: Latte Stack which I must say I've had for quite a while and never used..

I cut out the shapes and embossed them with various embossing folders. Then played around on a 15cm square card base until I was happy with the arrangement, I then added bits and pieces from my stash to give interest. I think if I had used a with love sentiment this could be an understated Valentines card... especially for a man.

As the DP went through my Cuttlebug it took some of the colour off here and there giving it a slight aged look ... I liked that. You can just see it on this photo.

See you soon
xx Suzi B xx
