With Sympathy - CR84FN11


Thanks for stopping by today! This week CR84FN brings you another beautiful color challenge of Red, Kraft and Brown!  Aren't these colors wonderful together!  Lately I've been moving away from creating A2 sized cards and have been making a lot of 5-1/4" square cards.  I just love the way Heartfelt Creations Decorative Window Scene Die looks on the larger sized cards.

The Kraft panel is Dry Embossed using a Texture Plate, then lightly sponged with Chocolate Ink.  The Tulip is Brown Embossed, then paper pieced with Basic Grey Curio Paper.  I embossed the Tulip a second time and popped up a layer for added dimension.

Beautiful tulip, love the light embossing on the background paper and that die cut is awesome! That is a great size card too, I've been making more of those too since there are so many great die cuts and nesties out there. Beautiful work.
