Autumn Blessed Card with Double Embossing


You will be seeing many cards with this new favorite technique of mine which involves embossing folders and embossing powders and aluminum foil that I learned about here.  This card is even prettier IRL. I used a Darice swirly leaves embossing folder and red, gold and copper embossing powders for the lovely background. Scroll down on my blog for a more detailed description of the technique, or click on the link in the above linked blogpost for a tutorial as well. I am finding that it is even more effective using several colors of Stazon or Archival ink first and several colors of embossing powders as well. The "blessed" die is from Simon Says Stamp. 

I am entering this card in the CAS challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

This one is very pretty also. I have an order for some fall theme cards so I definitely am going to try this.
