I Set My Own Challenge

CAS-ual Fridays challenge week is to:

  Create a Clean And Simple project that features embossing--
dry embossing, embossing folders, or heat set embossing.

I decided to add my own challenge in making my card.   I wanted only to use dry embossing  - no stamping! I have a number of embossing folders that I haven't used and this was a great opportunity to give three of them their first airing.

Unusually for me, I chose a white DL card for the base.  I rarely use this size but I am now warming to it.  The silver card used for the embossing came from a DCWV Metallic Stack that I bought cheaply at Hobbycraft. It has a linen texture which, unfortunately, doesn't show in the pic.

This is so elegant, and I can *just* make out the linen texture. Gorgeous!
