Embossing at Allsorts Challenge

Hello and welcome! It's Saturday, that means a new theme starts today at Allsorts challenge. Kath is hosting and she picked the theme of Embossing. You can heat emboss or dry emboss, the choice is yours and I hope you'll decide to join us!

I decided to use dry embossing using an old Cuttlebug embossing folder in my Big Shot machine. This folder is old and I don't remember what the pattern is called, but there are many to choose from on Amazon and several options at Scrapbook dot com.

The image is from the Penny Black set Happy Together. I stamped with Memento ink and then colored with Copic markers. It's hard to see but the butterfly (also from the set) was stamped and fussy cut then added with foam tape to make it pop up.

The simple sentiment is from Penny Black's set Snippets. I found the die cut circle and scallop circle already pre-cut in my box of die cut paper scraps, they were one with old nestabilities dies using Stampin Up card stock. The scallop circle looks black but is a dark burgundy or purple in real life. I think the  photo below shows the color better.

Thanks so much for visiting!
