With every leaf a miracle or "Emboss Everything"

Hi, there!  Fall is definitely in the air though it's not cool enough for the changing of the colors.  That is my absolute favorite thing about falls - besides sweaters - and hot drinks - and the dying of bugs - I like a lot of things about fall!  

This is the about the only time I reach for my oranges and browns - probably the least of my favorite colors.  But they are just beautiful and perfect for autumn inspired cards.

My first step in making the card above was to clear emboss the grid lines on black cardstock.  I then went back and colored in some squares with an embossing pen - it gives the card texture but oh-so-subtle.  I love the shiny black on black look.

The little leaves were die cut with a watercolor scrap I scribbled with waterbrush markers and die cut (Impression Obsession Little Leaves) and I also added a layer of ultra thick embossing powder.

The quote was white embossed... just changed my title to include "Emboss Everything" - didn't realize how much I did that until I wrote up this description! Lol!

  1. I love fall! I love embossing! Ergo, I love your card!

    Seriously, isn’t embossing like magic? I am always so thrilled to see nothing become something when using Versamark and embossing powder. I don’t think I’ve ever used clear on black cardstock though — the result is gorgeous. Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. Wonderful card, Diana!!! I love how you did the background and the leaves look fabulous against it!!
