Embossed Frame

My favourite, favourite stamps have found their way into use again for this CAS card. This is a bit of a departure from my recent makes. I have been using CDs for several weeks now and wanted to get back to my first love - stamping.

The dandelions were stamped over a rectangular mask that I cut from thin card. I then turned the card over and used my light box to emboss the frame.



I felt that the result was a bit flat.  I could have  heat embossed it if I had used the correct ink but I decided to give it a bit of a sparkle by applying glue by means of  Quickie Glue Pen (don'tyou just love these) and adding diamond sparkle glitter.  Stamps are from Lavinia Stamps and  the ink is Adirondack Currant.



I will enter this into the Less is More challenge which requires a frame to be included in the submission.  I am completely in awe of the other entries!
