Wreath Petals

The uses for the embossing folders are many and varied. I have used them to make embossed frames, but that was all. During some recent ‘surfing’ Tami showed how to use these folders for partial embossing. My first attempt uses the Petals-a-Plenty folder to create a wreath. I love the effect it has made.

I used a Crumb Cake top note as the embossing surface, and sponged Old Olive on the petals of the wreath. A Riding Hood Red marker was then used on the berries. A piece of 1¼” striped grosgrain ribbon was placed across the bottom of the top note with a build a brad in the middle to create a bow like effect. This was matted on a piece of Riding Hood Red and placed on a Crumb Cake card. The sentiment from Many Merry Messages was then stamped in Riding Hood Red.

.. and to complete the picture, I partially embossed a wreath on the inside of the card.
