My first sample is all about textures. I ran the card front through the X-Cut Foliage embossing folder. Next I heat embossed the flowers and leafy element from the Sketchy Doodle Flowers A4 sheet with WOW Rich Gold EP on black card and coloured them in with my Caran d'Ache Suprasoft water colour pencils. Next I fussy cut and adhered the leaves down to the card front and popped up the flowers with some foam tape. The sentiment is from the Loving Sentiments A5 sheet, also heat embossed in gold.
Here's a close-up... you can just about see all the embossing.
For my second card, I decided to make a One Layer Card. Now that was a challenge for me! I started by heat embossing directly on to the card base and colouring in with pencils. I also heat embossed the greeting from the Birthday Words A5 set and it would have been a One Layer Card ... had I stopped there. At the last minute I added a fussy-cut gold-embossed leafy sprig to balance the sun burst. (What?!) I rounded the corners and called it a day.
In the close-up you can see the leaf barely hanging off the card. I also added some Glossy Accents to the centre of the sunburst and the leaves.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you're watching the Oscars - enjoy. We usually give it a miss because the live telecast here in Portugal is way past our normal bedtime. At our age, beauty sleep is mandatory! :) No doubt we'll be reading all about the Oscars for the next week(s) or so!
Have a grand Sunday, friends.
