CAS Embossed Front Cards

Clean and simple is usually not my style but I wanted to try something a little different.

Each of these cards has an embossed area around the image and that was done using dies. I have an embossing pad and mat for my die cutting machine and it creates a neat effect. 

I used a stitched bracket die to emboss the lower right corner on this card. The flowers were stamped and coloured and the sentiment was stamped underneath. I added a few Liquid Pearl drops around the card and mounted the card front to the base using craft foam.

Some pointed circle dies were used to emboss the second card. They are nesting dies so I used two of them. The butterfly background was die cut from inside the circles and I inked a background to place behind that open section. The detailed butterfly was die cut in white and adhered to the inked background. A sentiment was stamped at the top and some Liquid Pearls were added.

I really like that first card. I tried the embossed diecut technique last year with one of the labels CTMH sold and I couldn't get it right. I love how you put the image in the bracket and the sentiment up top. It's stunning.
