FRENCH FOLIAGE

Can you tell? I simply adore the Stampin' Up! set French Foliage! It is wonderfully versatile. And NEVER disappoints.

This is a card I sent to my family for Thanksgiving last year. Simply made, it appears to be  more complicated.


Basically, all you do to get this highly-textured, rich effect is to stamp your images on a piece of Sahara Sand card stock, and THEN run it through the Big Shot inside the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. To add a bit to the distressed look, I ripped, bent and curled the edges of this layer, in addition to sponging the distressed edges and here and there across the image with Sahara Sand ink.

Here is a closer view of the textured surface:


Quite loverly, huh?

Smiles.
