File under “one of a kind”

Brenda Weaver had created an amazing card with this faux embossing technique, which is layering punched or cut-out pieces on the same color panel.  It creates the shadows you see from true dry embossing, but with sharper edges.  So I thought I would whip up this CASEd version.

Let me tell you, this looks easier than it is.  Of course, if I had tried simpler shapes (that will be my next attempt) instead of words that had to be fitted together and straight, it would have been a snap.  I love the way this looks, but I don’t think I’ll be duplicating it!

The words are from the exclusive Stampin’ Up! Join the Cheer Sizzlit Decorative Strip Die, found on page 196.  It makes a great border for a scrapbook page.  You can also carefully trim the words apart.

Stamps:  Christmas Greetings (p. 28)

Ink:  Basic Gray

Paper:  Melon Mambo, Basic Gray, Whisper White

Other:  Big Shot and Join the Cheer die, Scallop Edge punch, 1/2″ Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (Melon Mambo), Stampin’ Dimensionals

    I think this is a fab card. Years ago I made a wedding card by punching flower shapes out of white and adhering them to a white card. I think the white on white looks very elegant.
