A card tutorial: embossing over stamping...

I'm up at Gossamer Blue today with a tutorial on how to dry emboss your cards over the top of stamping or rub ons like I've done here! I've used the November kits on this card. First, I stamped the sentiment from the Heidi Swapp stamps, "The Best is Yet to Come".
Next, I cut out some of the gold floral rub-ons from the Open Book rub-ons and applied them with my stylus. These rub on like butter! Love them. You'll be seeing a lot more from me with these rub ons, as I'm currently working on a class with the Open Book line by Maggie Holmes. (Online class with me coming in January!)
Here you can see I've added a few more of the floral rub ons to the upper right corner, and a rub-on dotted line under the sentiment. Next, I'll be running this through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder.
Place the card front into the embossing folder and run it through your die cutting/embossing machine. I use the Cuttlebug.
Last, I added the card front to a white card base, dressed up my envelope with paper in the kit cutting it with the Envelope Liner die by Papertrey Ink, and added a few wooden hearts.
Would be a wonderful card for a wedding, graduation, etc.

Swing by the Gossamer Blue blog if you haven't lately. Such a great blog, love all of the beautiful projects the gals come up with!!
