{Another} Ink Embossed Note Card

Here's another card I created using the same ink and emboss technique that I used on my last cards.

I simply dabbed my Creme Brulee ink pad directly onto the inside of the embossing folder (the side with the most flat space), and then placed a piece of Colonial White cardstock inside of it, then rolled it through my Cuttlebug.

Easy, and it gives a soft and pretty look.
And I like how it isn't perfectly perfect, which just seems to add to the interest of the card.

I used the chicken wire stamp from Distressed Backgrounds to stamp with Lagoon ink onto Lagoon cardstock for the edge.

I heat embossed the main image by first stamping the bird and flowers with Slate pigment ink.
Then I simply coloured the images with my alcohol markers.
I added some Almond Glitz Glitter Gel to the centers of each flower, too.

I used 3D foam tape to attach the ink embossed layer, and also the main image.

And lastly, I added the Rosette Ribbon with a piece of ScorTape.

I really like the overall softness of this card.  ♥

Happy creating!  :)
