I wish that you could feel this card! There is so much texture. It is not only EMbossed but also DEbossed as well!! I was able to achieve this using the Letterpress plate Lots of Love (#120983–$7.95). I used the versamark pad directly on the plate and then fed it through the Big Shot. That is one way to use the letterpress…..and the easiest way. The one tip I have about the Letterpress plates is that they really work best with new cutting plates–so I have one just for this purpose that never sees a real “cut”.
The hearts are made using Heart of Hearts (#117332~$11.95) Embosslit die. This die cuts AND embosses at the same time! Brilliant!!
Finally the bow finishes off this card. Here is a close up:
Yes, I made a bow!!!! I learned how to make these bows using brads and LOVE the look. It looks like I can really make a bow!!! I used the Blush Blossom Glimmer brad (# 121005~$4.95–FOR 40 BRADS!) from Occasions Mini catalog. I hope these glimmer brads make the cut and get into the BIG catalog for next year. I love them–they come in 4 different collections and I love each and every one. But just in case they don’t make the cut, you can get them now until the end of April!
