Embossed or no?

  Hello crafters!

Popping in to share a card with you today. I really love the lattice craze that's going on right now. I don't have a lattice embossing folder but that's the look I wanted so I got a little creative.

I cut several of the Memory Box Tessatina Border and quickly colored them with a copic before adhering them to my card base. It's raised just like dry embossing without the embossing folder :)

I love the way it looks in the background I'm just not crazy about the whole card. I guess that happens to all of us sometimes :)

Thanks for coming over!


  1. So pretty. I never would have guessed that's how you made your background. What sort of adhesive did you use?

  2. WOW Kelly! The background looks GREAT!
    FANTASTIC card.

  3. I love that pattern, I think it's just as good or better than an embossed one. Very clever and beautiful colors too. I think your card as a whole is beautiful! I know what you mean, ugh, when a card doesn't meet up with the design in your head. Just keep enjoying the process.

  4. Great use of what you have to hand... who needs an embossing folder ???? :)
    Your flower is beautifully coloured too.

  5. Kelly, I saw a couple of new posts from you come up on my blogger feed, but I've clicked on them and it says they are not there.
