A quick embossing folder card

Here's a quick card idea for you.... soft colors, lot's of texture, fun technique.


I inked up a Tim Holtz embossing folder with Soft Sand ink before running a panel of white cardstock through the folder.  I trimmed the panel, stamped and cut out some flowers, then added a birthday message. You could change the colors up to fit any mood, gender or occasion.

Have a great day!
