Cuttlebug embossing folder
Sentiment from TLC

This card looks clean and simple and with the correct tools it was. At first I couldn't work out how to keep the centre from being embossed knowing that I wanted the embossing to surround the sentiment. A trip to my local framers with some Spellbinder dies, and hey presto mount board cut to suit my dies. So instead of using a plate on my cutting machine I used the die cut mount board.

Challenges embossing folder and ribbon at least 2 years old

Ooh this is gorgeous Meg.. what a beautiful design! I love the embossing and the wonderful sentiment!! I bought some embossing masks to do similar… but not sure where I've put them!! LOL will have to try and find them and have a go with them.
Aww I really missed Downton too yesterday!! can't wait for the Christmas one. I am enjoying The Paradise though and Strictly.

Simple and very elegant! I adore the small writing behind the Merry Christmas and the sweet little bow is a gorgeous eye catcher.

Wow! Great card for our recipe challenge - one layer, hint of colour touch of bling- you did it and it's beautiful! Great way to mask your embossing too - thanks for the tip. Thanks for playing along with us at 52 CCT
