Simply Thinking of you...

I have never been very good at the CAS card style
so I was determined to give it ago this week for 
the new challenge at Addicted to Stamps.

I wanted to work on a 6x6 card, but didn't have any!!!
So I took a larger card and cut it down to size.
The reason for 6x6 was I had just bought this X-Cut 
embossing folder and wanted to use it to frame a stamped image...
To make sure the image fit I masked off the centre of the blank card to the size of the inner frame...
and grabbed my other new bargain buy...
Create a scene set from Docrafts.
Simple over stamping in black and deep teal...
made a lovely soft scene for the centre of the card.
(but I used the wrong masking tape and it damaged the card surface)
Still I fitted the card into the embossing folder...
...and got it wonky, which annoyed me :/
So I cut another 6x6, cut the original art work from the wonky frame and mounted it on some pastel teal satin finish cardstock, before adding as a topper wihin the new frame.
A little rub of a paler teal ink lifts the embossing just a little
*just couldn't leave it plain white lol*
Enjoy :D XXX

Entering for;

Also I would like to give a quick reminder that you still have time to join the current challenge over at Crafting When We Can # 126 Use Dies and Punches
