Day 9 of the online CAS card class was all about adding texture to you clean and simple design. I have this new long and narrow Darice embossing folder and this seems a good opportunity to use it.
I created 2 cards using different parts of the embossing folder and using 2 different inking techniques to hightlight the embossing. For this one, I first embossed the butterflies and then applied distress ink, working from the outer edges. The banner was cut with a W9plus die and the sentiment (Paper Smooches) was heat-embossed in white onto Colorcore cardstock. The button is from my recycled stash.
