This card was up on the Core'dinations blog the other day, just a little something to help you celebrate the 4th of July, Independence Day, with a bang!
What you can't see here is that the background piece had a window of embossing that I created using Darice's embossing folder "masks". Using this special cut out instead of one of your sandwich plates, you can select areas that you don't emboss.
To the left is the sandwich (minus the paper) and to your right is the resulting effect. I chose to "fill" the hole with another piece of embossed BlackMagic that I cut using the embossing mask to trace the oval. The result is less "raised" area as you put embossed cardstock on flat cardstock (as opposed to two layers of embossed paper).
There is a lot of depth to this card with the fireworks really coming at you! I only adhered the center of the die cut firework sprays thus enabling me to use my finger nail to curl out the "arms". A little Stickles adds to festivities!
It's only a day away the fourth! Can't believe it, cliche as that is. Do you have big plans? We will definitely be viewing fireworks, it's just a matter of where! Be sure to stop in tomorrow for an Imaginisce Independence Day layout!
