Summer Card Camp 2 Week 3 Day 2

Oh my gosh, 2 posts in one day, woo hoo!!!  Back with another card that I made from today's class.  Today one of the lessons was embossing die cuts and I was so inspired Jennifer's first card, that I cased it changing things up just a little.  I absolutely love the prim poppy die cut by memory box.  It is so delicate and I love Jennifer's tip to die cut 2 pieces of cardstock glued together and that is what I did.  Worked like a charm!  I used more of the beautiful memento luxe inks and clear embossed them.  I embossed the poppy image 3 times and the butterflies only once.  I also embossed the sentiment using the rich cocoa ink and clear embossing powder.  I popped my embossed panel up over the aqua mist panel.  Can't wait to see the gallery.  I haven't visited it in a few days. 

I need to clean up my crap room (affectionately named, lol!)  My hubby went into last night and told me it looked like a hoarders room!!!  Yikes!  OK, he MIGHT have a point, but I haven't found a way to be creative without being messy, have you?

Anywho, here is my card for today's class:

 
supplies:
cardstock:  kraft, white, aqua mist
ink:  memento luxe - lilac posies, sweet plum
rich cocoa, versamark
die cut:  prim poppy by memory box
embossing folder:  lifestyle crafts
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
nestabilities
pearls

    1. With Jennifer's tip about gluing 2 pieces of paper together before die cutting, it works like a charm:)
