Creative Embossing

I went on a buying spree awhile back and bought a stack, okay two stacks, of embossed white cards. Now I have to decide what to do with them all so I started getting creative.

Here is the way the card looked in the beginning.
And this is the finished card.

The big player in doing this card was my Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad in Shaded Lilac. It glides on relief much easier than a sponge ink pad because of the material over the sponge. I used my colored pencils to color certain areas but I used my Stickles glitters to add that extra sparkle. We all love our sparkle!

One card done and only about 50 more to go. Yup, I bought that many but thank goodness for the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads. I have a feeling I'll be using a lot of them in many different colors. :)


  1. Lorby your card is so pretty. How convenient to have cards already embossed. So many ways to decorate them. Hugs, Fran

  2. Thank you Fran. I really appreciate your comments.
