Simple Card using Dove of Peace

This is another of the cards we made in our Shoe Box Swap evening. This isn’t a stamp set that jumped out of me from the catalogue, so it was a great chance to get to create something with it.

The vellum was embossed using the Softly Falling embossing folder. I really like how you can choose two different effects depending on which way round you put your embossed sheet. As you can see, I went with more rather than less!

This card also reminded me how effective heat embossing can be, along with the use of watercolour paper and a stylish swash from an aqua painter. And who could resist adding a bit of bling to finish it off?
