Just Believe

While checking out all the lovely creations on the internet yesterday I came across this card by Brenda Keenan using the faux embossing technique.  Make sure you check it out, because Brenda has also filmed a tutorial on this technique 🙂  Here’s my version of Brenda’s card.

Just Believe 001 Front

I can’t wait to get my hands on the Baked Brown Sugar that Brenda used for her card, but in the mean time, I made do with Crumb Cake 🙂

Just Believe 001 Inside

I am really pleased with how this turned out, and can’t wait to teach the faux embossing technique to my regular stamping ladies.

I’m not sure what made me put a sympathy sentiment on my card, but I’m glad I did, as the man who drives my son’s school bus told me this morning that his mum passed away yesterday, so I will give this card to him this afternoon.

On a brighter note…..

The Make a Monster card I posted on Sunday was a top 3 pick for Mary Jo’s Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Your card is beautiful! How pretty to repeat that technique for the inside – I’m afraid I’m guilty of having “plain” insides, may need to start jazzing them up a bit! Thanks you for the mention of my video too – that was really nice of you 🙂
