Hello Saturday! I have absolutely nothing that needs to get done today, so I stayed up late last night playing in my room. I meant to try out some more of my new goodies, but I saw this sketch on Hand Stamped Semtiments and had an idea for it.
I've done many quilting cards before, and love the extra dimension the embossing gives. Lately I've been on a square card kick (but I hate that I can only get one card out of a regular sized piece of cardstock). Unfortunately, the biggest square card the folders can accommodate is 4.25". So, I used the textures impressions plates (they've retired now - sorry!) to get my quilting done for this one.
Other than size, the difference between the TI plates and the embossing folders is that the EF offer a much deeper, crisper texture. I really prefer the EF, but I wanted to make a nice big card, so that wasn't an option. As you can tell from the picture, the embossing is quite subtle, but it shows much more in person. Overall I'm still really happy with the card. The colours are sure to brighten someone's day!
