Old Favorites...

Before I joined the stamping world, one of my favorite techniques was dry embossing! I thought I'd bring out some of my old templates and play...

Here for You Card



Goodies:

Stamps: Friends 24-7 set; Cute and Curly set by Stampin' Up!
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black classic inks
Paper: cardstock by Bazzill Basics, Stampin' Up!, DCWV, and Core-dinations; patterned paper by Heidi Grace Designs
Accessories: Ribbon, halfback pearls, Scallop Edge punch, Curly Label punch by Stampin' Up!; Eiffel Tower embossing template by Lasting Impressions

I actually debossed the Eiffel tower image... it's the backside of my original design but it was much crisper looking then the embossed side when sanded! I thought this paper by Heidi Grace Designs was a perfect compliment to it. I love the purples!

Hope you all have a great weekend and have time to craft on National Scrapbooking Day! Thanks for stopping by this afternoon!

For the longest time, Royal Purple was my favorite color... so I'm a big purple fan! Great job with this card - I really love the layout too.
