Four Frames

I was doing alittle experimenting, I like the Emboss Resist
Technique and having just got my new Stampin' Up! Color Coach it was fun to try some different color combinations.  This combination uses Stampin' Up! Rich Razzelberry, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie colors.

The cardstock base is Rich Razzelberry, a layer of Old Olive that I ran threw my Big Shot using the SU Tulip Frames Embossing Folder, then the Glossy Cardstock that I stamped using the stamp set Always and Four Frames using Versamark and embossed that with black embossing powder. After letting it dry, I sponged on the color and finished the card! 

This is a fun technique, alittle time consuming but the finished product is so pretty in real life!  This will make a great anniversary or wedding card depending on the occasion.

As always, thanks for visiting.
