I was playing with my new embossing folder last night and I thought of doing something I've never done before which is embossing the pattern just a little bit at the bottom of the card. So this way, I don't have to emboss the pattern on another paper and paste it on the card as the card itself is already embossed where I wanted it to be.
From there I figured out little by little how to create a design with the embossed card. Thought of something else at first but in the end it turned out to be a Love Theme Card instead. It was all because I wanted to use that frill die cut pattern. I thought of using it to make a branch for a quilled bird. And looks like it was suitable and I loved it. After die cutting the pattern, I then had to cut some of the frills in such a way to make it look like a branch so that the quilled bird can rest on it.
At first I didn't even want to add the distress ink......I wanted it to be a clean cut design.....but at the very last minute I started to add it bit by bit.....it was very risky because I've already added all the other designs on the card.....so one little mistake when distressing can ruin the whole card altogether. But I'm glad it turned out alright in the end. Phew!
This design is definitely meant for a guy. Very simple design. Not many frills or embellishments on it. :)
