I did a My Creations Box (retired now) and Chantilly Paper Packet.
The colors in the new Chantilly Paper Packet (X7163B) are so cheerful, and makes any project pop.

  9. This is gorgeous! Did you draw on the roses after you stamped them. They seem more detailed with more highlights and shadows. Love it!

    1. Thanks, I actually stamped the images, cut one leaving a white cardstock edge and then cut the second one about an eighth of an inch from the outside edge, then I places the pieces in an embossing folder to give them more dimension, layering the two and popping it up.

  10. This is gorgeous! The dry embossing has such a striking effect.

  11. very pretty! What a great idea to emboss on the flowers too!
