My Time to Craft #343 No Designer Papers.

Good morning! I hope you're all having a good weekend!

Our new Challenge at My Time to Craft is to use No Designer Papers. I went with dry embossing and inlaid die-cutting to make my card.

The most important thing to remember about embossing your background is to die-cut first! Squished embossing is not very pretty - go on, guess how I know! Anyway, I cut the hearts using a nesting die set and some card snippets to give an ombre effect before embossing the background with a Sizzix folder. Then I used a scrap of typing paper to back the aperture and glued the hearts onto it. I added clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.

The gold-embossed sentiment is from Super Script stamp set by Altenew.

My teamies have all been so inventive with their creations, do pop over to the blog to see what they've done!

Thanks for looking.

love Mags B x

Lovely card Mags - great ombre effect there. Ha, I spotted the word snippets as well!?!

Isn't it funny, I always have to stop and think when I want to die cut and emboss the same piece of card - done it wrong a few times in the past :)

Glorious weather isn't it - happy dance!

This is so pretty with the 4 shades of the heart inlay. Very striking with the embossing background. Had to chuckle at the 'die cut first' statement...know exactly what you mean! (been there, done that, probably will again too!) It's a lovely card, I really like the CAS look. TFS & Hugs
