The intentions of this card started out this way:
I like the texture the cuttlebug gives the cards, but I do not have a cuttlebug and don't think I will be getting one in the near future. So I thought I'd try clear embossing the background. It obviously does not give the same texture, but I do like it. I guess to get more of the cuttlebug type of texture, I should use dry embossing. (have to get the embosser).
For the stamped image I decided to emboss it with iridescent ice. I used the Simply Said image.
I took a number of photos. They were all coming out too shiny. It doesn't appear quite as shiny IRL.
