Partial Embossing using an Embossing Folder

Good morning!
And another bright and sunny one it is too!

Here is one of the cards I made at Jen's yesterday afternoon whilst there with Vicky too.

I decided I needed to try my hand at a male anniversary/valentine card as I have none in my box! Can you see how the card has been partially embossed? I did this popping my card blank into my Argyle EF and taping it shut so the card doesn't move. I then taped a strip of double thickness chipboard across the outside of the EF, where I wanted embossing. With the chipboard side down, I ran it through my bigshot missing the bottom clear plate. I repeated this step further down the card to create another strip.

The word 'love' is stamped onto the card blank using my brand new Morning Post stamp set, and I cut out the 'O' and popped it up for dimension! The button is made from the fabby Simply Pressed has added no weight to my card at all! The hearts were sadly retired a while ago.

Stamp - Morning Post
Ink - Real Red, Island Indigo
Embossing - Argyle EF
Other - Simply Pressed Clay & Moulds, Island Indigo Baker's Twine
