Make It Monday, #131 Striped Embossing

Betsy Veldman, from Papertrey Ink, has challenged us to create a project with striped embossing. I needed to make a retirement card for a male friend of mine, so I thought embossed leaves would make a good masculine card. I used the leaves from "Meadow Greens", and the sentiment is from "Bigger Blooms" (both PTI). I used 3 metallic embossing powders: Gold, Copper and Merlot, to simulate fall colours. (Even though it still feels like summer here, today!) Because I photographed this card in the sun, it's hard to see that I've used rustic cream cardstock--a little too overexposed, unfortunately.


And here is a close up of the metallic leaves. The metallic powders really glow!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
