Embossed Ornament


I don't have an embossing machine so I taped my die to the window.

This is the end result ,if you are going to add colour put the die or stencil back over your design ,I added ink using a sponge ,gold marker pen and some very tiny gold stars.

I remember embossing that way Gail! Gosh, that was a long time ago and I'm so glad the Cuttlebug has come along since then. You've done a fabulous job with your card, I love how you added the colour and I love the colours you chose. Well done!
Cheers,
Beccy

This is gorgeous, and I applaud your ingenuity. I too used to do that prior to getting a light box, and of course now we can just shove them through a machine.

Great design, lovely colours.

Thanks for sharing with us

Such a stunning card Gail, I really love the colours you've used. I'm very impressed with your patience and skill. I never had the diligence to emboss against the windows.

Thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Cardmakers.

This is lovely Gail and really like how you coloured the embossing. I think I would find it hard to survive without my Cuttlebug.
