So, we've got a French-ish piece using a Holtz borderline mask and worn lipstick distress ink, among other stamps and embellishments.
That's the card I think I meant to make all along.
The next piece was my first attempt for this week's Compendium challenge: It's funny ... looking.
The third photo is only to prove that you can use embossing folders without an embossing machine ... you'll even end up being able to put the embossing EXACTLY where you want it to go.
Just put your paper in the folder, grab a mallet and bang away!
Really! Take a look at my "Amite" card! See how the pressed embossing sort of wraps around the stamped image? All mallet baby!
