It's Jennipher with my latest card for Classy Cards 'n Such.
If you are short on time, one of the easiest ways to design a quick card is by using an embossing folder. Some of them, like the Spring embossing folder I used here from Crafts Too, have designs that are more than just a repeated pattern. By adding black pearls to the centers of the embossed flowers and in the flower buds, I enhanced the actual design and gave it added dimension.
By adding Black Soot Distress Ink to the edges of my vanilla card base I gave the illusion of another layer while pulling the black, azalea, and vanilla color scheme all together. All that's left to do is add a sentiment in a spot that doesn't take away from the intricate design, which for me was the lower right hand corner.
Next time you need a card in a pinch, try using an embossing folder for a quick and elegant design!
I have very few of that great Spring folder that Jennipher used, so order now while I have some! If I run out and you order before September 30th, you can still apply the SEP15 promo code at checkout to get 15% off all embossing folders. The vendor has been out as well but they are expected back in stock soon. I'll just need to hold your entire order until the folders come in.
Thanks Jenn!!! And thanks to all of you for stopping by!!! Until next time...
