Cala Lily.... and more

Good evening to you all and a very warm welcome to Seema.
I was looking through my cards the other week and I had most celebrations covered except for sympathy. These I find very hard to make so I had a rummage through all my flowers and came across some cala lilies and this is what I did with them.
6x6 scallop white card.
Embossalicious Folder
Marianne Anja Flourish LR0271
sentiment embossed with Debbie Moore Deep Red embossing powder
Flowers from stash.
-----------------------
As some of you know from my previous post HERE. That I have been playing with making my own embossing folders here are a couple more.

I found a Fleur De Lis punch, this time I only layered 2 together, then ran it through the GD onto Core dinations card then sanded it to bring the core through.
------------

Again 2 layers only, then embossed onto white card,
 sorry I cannot remember the name of the die I used.
I hope these give you some ideas that you can use to make your own.

  7. A wonderfully elegant sympathy card Chris.
    I too have used the same technique with dies to make an embossed background. Cogs and snowflakes work brilliantly doing this. I love your floral one x
