Fresh Cut Notes - Taken with Teal
Next I tried clear embossing on Taken with Teal. I cut a piece of Taken with Teal slightly smaller than the Fresh Cut note. I stamped "thank you" randomly in versamark on Taken with Teal, sprinkled it with clear embossing powder, used heat tool to emboss, this makes the image "pop" out and in my humble opinion, looks classy. I used the scallop edge punch, leaving the ends in tact and giving you a glimpse of Taken with Teal underneath. I stamped the small 5 petal flower with versamark on Taken with Teal, repeated the embossing process and cut it out. I added a designer button threaded with silver elastic cord and adhered to top of embossed flower which was then adhered to the centre of the cut out flower of the Fresh Cut note. I then stamped "thank you" in Taken with Teal on the bottom, made a tiny notch top and bottom as close to the fold line as possible so that the silver elastic cord had something to "anchor" to, then cut a length of silver elastic cord to make a bow and slipped this round the card secured on the notches.
