Almost Artisan – Double Embossed Dare to Dream

This is my 4th card entry for the the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design team contest.

I really love how this one turned out.  For the Crumb Cake layer I did double embossing – first I embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder and the Big Shot and then I embossed it a second time using the Tulip Frame Embossing Folder.  The stripes are still there but they are more subtle.  I sponges over the embossing for a vintage look.

I stamped “Dare to Dream” on a piece of the twill tape and attached it to the card with some of the little brads in the Vintage Trinkets.  My favorite part is the butterfly – I cut the butterfly with my Big Shot – stamped and sponged it.  Then added the body – which is the little safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets and it is wrapped with Linen Thread and then attached around the butterfly.

Really pretty results – I thought.  But not a finalist selection.  I’ll look for it on display at convention though.  Let me know if you see it there.

I’ll be on my way to Salt Lake City shortly – I am going early to spend some time with my upline, Wendy and other friends that are on her team.  I can’t wait!
