Sanded Embossing


At Flutterby Wednesday this week, we want to see some embossing on your creation {along with your butterfly, fairy or angel}.  It can be any kind of embossing. 

I've used an embossing folder called Playful Garden that I got from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.  I embossed a piece of ColorCore cardstock and gently sanded the raised image to let some of the white show through. 

I found the gorgeous gingham ribbon at Pizzazz Aplenty.  It's just stiff enough to tie a perfect bow on the first try - love it!  The the sentiment is a rub-on that I got from SU! a long time ago. 

Thanks for fluttering by!  Be sure to check out the FBW Blog for more inspiration by our amazing team and then link up your own embossed fluttery creation there too.  {wink}
