Knowing that somewhere along the way they probably would need a masculine card I designed these. I inked and sponged the embossed layers so they would be ready to go. We attached the ends of the twill tape to the back of the embossed cardstock using double sided tape and then glued it to the card front. To create the central element we layered two dark halves behind the metallic decorative label (SU) and glued on a little flocked heart. It was adhered to the card front using 3D foam tape and then we glued three little punchies to the lower right side.
I like accenting embossing using ink pads because it just hits the high areas and really makes the images pop!! For the brown one I used two colours because the first one was too brown and it really added depth to the image!!
