thought I should get going on cards. I had recently seen the
technique of inking an embossing folder to get a two color emboss. It is much like pottery and is very elegant. So, I played with this a bit and came up with a card base done in pink and white. Then I took a Quick cutz heart die and cut 2 hearts in 2 sizes with red and pink paper. I ran the pink heart through the swiss dots folder and popped both hearts on foam tape. I think it turned out elegant and simple. The shading on the embossed card can be tailored to the look you want. Great technique and one I will use a lot.

910 pm: Well more cards made! This next one uses the same color embossing as the one above but a reversed image..the colored part is the unraised part and the white is the raised embossing. I then cut out a frame from Ornamental Iron 2...page 54...lace 2 in pink at 2 3/4 inches and then the lace 2 shadow (on the left) at 2 3/4 in in white. I popped the frame and shadow on 2 thicknesses of foam tape. I then stamped the greeting in SU chocolate chip. The stamp is a Michael's dollar bin stamp.
I think it is a great girly card with the pink........Having fun today crafting....hope you are too!
