TLC340 Embossed Kisses

Hello everyone...it's my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast and this weeks challenge has come to us from the very talented Susan Roberts...it's called Embossed Kisses!!! She created a tutorial for this technique on her blog...check it out!!

My card features ornament stamps from Papertrey Ink's Vintage Ornaments. Each ornament was "kissed" just a little bit differently. The red one was inked up with Riding Hood Red and kissed on a dry diamond shaped embossing folder before stamping it on the white cardstock. The light green one was inked with River Rock and kissed on a snowflake folder that was inked up with Old Olive. The small round ornament was inked with Old Olive and kissed on a swirly folder that was inked with black. The ornaments were all cutout and adhered to the doily with pop dots. The doily was cutout using a Papertrey Ink doily die, the scallop was made with a Papertrey Ink scallop die, sewing was done around the edges of the background paper, and the seam binding, felt snowflake, button, and Baker's Twine finish it off.
Recipe: Stamps: Papertrey Ink Vintage Ornaments
Paper: Authentique's Wonder dp, Vanilla, Riding Hood Red
Ink: River Rock, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Black
Accessories: Gold Cording, Seam Binding, Felt Snowflake from Little Yellow Bicycle, Button, Baker's Twine, Doily Die from PTI, Scallop Die from PTI, Sewing Machine, Embossing Folders
