The Flower Challenge #32


I have been crowned the Queen of Embossing by a few generous friends... time to polish that crown [lol], and get out the 'big guns' for this one!  and I do mean BIG ... yes, this is a full 8.5 x 11 inch piece of cardstock!

 
Half of which I've used as my card base...
 
 
Which means this card is even pretty on the inside!


I've featured some pretty buds from Altenew's Peony Bouquet to add a floral print to my Mega U for this card - buds are about all I see so far this Spring … hope your world is filled with flowers! 
Thanks to The Flower Challenge for allowing me to dust off this full-sheet embossing folder from Teresa Collins & Craftwell… it takes a Big Shot Plus to accommodate it!

I'm so honored by this win!
Thank you for the wonderful prize!

Just gorgeous, your highness! ;) You've enabled me to get that Mega U but I haven't found time to play with it....yet! I love how you've "shadowed" it with a red and your coloring is amazing!

You know, I still have that lovely gray piece that you embossed for me on our visit! What a treat to see you using that folder again on this magnificent card. You ARE the embossing queen. I thought it was the moonlight, but I think it's the glow of your polished crown I'm seeing XO

LOVE this! The embossing looks gorgeous but the star is that beautiful 'U' with red berries and bloom!

TaeEun said...

I didn't know that there is a embossing folder for a full Letter panel! Is there such a thing ?!!! It's really special to use a fully embossed cardbase ! The U with the red picking out from the behind and embellished with pretty buds looks very pretty! So glad you played along at The Flower Challenge :), Michele!

Bobby said...

I had to take a second look at Peony Bouquet to see what you did with their buds, Michele. Putting them all over the U made a great design that pops off the elegantly embossed background.

Bobby said...

Duh, I forgot to thank you for sharing this lovely with us at The Flower Challenge.

Patti said...

You definitely need a Big Shot Plus to make this, Michele! What a gorgeous and elegant card! Love the beautiful embossing, the layered big U with a red shadow, and the way you used the pretty buds stamp (I usually neglect)!
