Step Up Your Embossing // Avery Elle

Today's card is all about increasing the versatility of your dry embossing folders and stepping up the embossing with a little extra detail.

I used the fun Love Triangle embossing folder to emboss my background - I love using this folder, because it works with so many different themes and occasions.

To make the background really pop, I loosely colored the triangles using a Versamarker - I only colored the outside triangles, since the ones in the center were covered up by the piece of fabric.

I promise this will be my last card using the fawn from Storybook for at least a month. As for the other adorable images in the stamp set, I make no such promises. ;)

This card is for the AEI{heart}U non-white card base challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Monday favorite technique challenge (I went with embossing).

Thanks so much for stopping in and have a beautiful day!
