CAS Mix Up - November 2018 - Embossing Folders - Embossed Flower

Hi there,
Thanks for dropping by, lovely to see you here!

Today's card is for the CAS Mix Up Challenge this month to Use Embossing Folders + Stamping + Your Choice. I dry embossed the punched out petals for my flower and then sponged the edges and embossing to give it them more definition. I also shaped each petal and leaf before constructing the flower and added the gold gem when it was finished. The white matt is also dry embossed with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder. The leaves were stamped and fussy cut on Old Olive card with Old Olive Ink.
