Embossing for me :0)

Hello again my crafty friends, I have been playing with embossing, first of all for a wedding or perhaps an anniversary card
 and for this next card I embossed the gorgeous textural leaves and sprayed with Dylusion inks:0)
More information and a step by step on how I made this over at the Craft Barn Blog
I have scheduled this post because I'm off with my gorgeous girlies ( that's the grand daughters LOL) I will be back very soon to catch up with you all, have fun, hugs Gay xxx

I have finaly, (with help, thanks Isabelle :0) found out what I was doing wrong with these product links and now we have the stuff I used available to click on :0)
So for both cards

Both cards are embossed beautifully, Gay. As you say...your first one would be perfect for a wedding/anniversary, that embossing folder is gorgeous! I love how embossed your leaves and will pop over to the Craft Barn to see how you did that. Fabulous work! x

What a stunning embossing - both cards look brilliant, but I always love white on white. Thanks for your good wishes for my new job, AND letting me know about my showcase at LIM. I feel like I'm on a roll... might have a go at picking our lottery numbers tonight! ;)) Have a great weekend chick, Jo x

Wow Gay, these are both gorgeous. I love the 'almost' one layer card.... very effective. The wedding/anniversary card is absolutely stunning and you reminded me I have a card to make for a wedding we are going to on the 5th August. I might have to make good use of your inspiration. Hope you've had a good time with your girlies.
