I've been trying to make my card designs quite flat for the holidays. I don't know about you but I like to foam mount a lot of my images onto the card base, I love the dimension it gives to the finished card. But, I find these cards don't fit into standard envelopes and then I have to custom make envelopes and that takes extra time during this busy season.
This is one of the card designs I came up with.
I did an ombre watercolour background and ran it through my die cutting machine with the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Quilted Embossing Folder. Love the depth and texture of the embossing.
