Affectionately Yours card

Affectionately Yours

I pulled out some Designer Series Paper and embossing folders I haven't had time to play with until today.  I used one of the papers from the Affectionately Yours Specialty Design Series Paper set.  I added it to a Crumb Cake base card and framed it in Night of Navy. 

I realized that I also hadn't used the matching Floral Affection Textured Impression Embossing Folder, too.  I tried a couple of different treatments with the embossing folder, and finally settled on this treatment.  How did I do it?  I brayerd the embossing folder with Night of Navy, inserted a piece of Crumb Cake and ran it through the Big Shot.  Then I fussy cut around the flower images while the paper was still a bit wet from the ink.  It cut really easily, and I loved the final result.  

I had the Flourishing Phrases set sitting on my work space and I selected the little "hello" from that set to use on this card.  Looking at it now, I wish I had used a bolder "hello" so it stood out from the background better.  However, I wanted to get the card in the mail to my mother before the rains hit Houston, and before the postman arrived this morning.  I may do a redo of the sentiment  later if I decide to use the card for a class.  (I think I'm my worse critic...)    

The sentiment is stamped on the one of the die cut circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelit sets.  A piece of Burlap Ribbon adds interest behind the Stitched Shapes sentiment layer.
