This was a birthday card for one of the girls at work.  I used a cameo embossing folder with my Bigshot machine, and some Co’redinations cardstock which has a different colour core.  That allowed me to lightly sand the embossed surface and expose the different colour beneath.

The papers and image were from a crafting kit I got a few months ago with vintage images and stamps.  And although I didn’t scan inside, the sides were punched with my lace doily border, and I stamped a vintage style lady that matched the one on the chipboard image on the front (but it was reversed).

L was really pleased with it, and the whole team signed it for her.  It was fun to play around with some pretty images and colours.
