My Love Affair With Tulips


Hi everyone!  Welcome back for another week with the Digi Doodle Shop's Best!  This week we were challenged to do some wet or dry embossing!  This is right up my alley because I love dry embossing with the Cuttlebug Embossing Folders.

For today's card I used the Textile Embossing Folder on both the Old Olive and Regal Rose cardstock in the background.  I cut the cardstock into fourths then placed them in opposite corners.  I also changed things up a bit by rounding the opposite corners on both the shadow layer and image.  They do say that opposites attract... either that or I'm in bad need of a V8 juice, LOL!!!

The beautiful image is one you've seen me use over and over again! The Tulips are a ditital image from the Digi Doodle Shop and yes, I'm on a mission to see how many colors I'm able to color these lovely tulips. Let's just say I"m having a love affair with them!!!

Hope you have a beautiful day!

  • Stamps: Tulip (Digi Doodle Shop)
