Freshly Made Sketches #2-To Emboss or Not to Emboss?


This week at Freshly Made Sketches, we are creating a square card but you don't have to make it Square...feel free to make the sketch fit an A2 card!


The first card used the Always Thankful set and the new Hand-Penned Sentiments set.  I didn't emboss the images but stamped them in Early Espresso.


The second card used Versa Mark and some clear embossing powder mixed with Espresso Ink...what card do you think works better? 

Please visit us at Freshly Made Sketches to link up your card before noon next Monday!  The design team has some gorgeous samples to share....

  3. I vote embossed as well. The darker image stands out more and looks gorgeous with that blue. Very pretty fall cards.

  8. Oh, definitely embossed. That one makes quite a statement! I love how you've added the library clip - yet another embellishment I've never used!

  9. I don't know, Lesley - I think they both work perfectly. The softness of the un-embossed and the sharpness of the embossed...it pops perfectly.

  11. I guess I'm in the minority, but I really like the unembossed one. But, I wouldn't mind receiving either one, that's for sure!!

  12. I love the embossed version, Lesley! It really shows off the sentiment and that image to perfection! Love the Spice Cake background. Can you believe I still haven't opened my pack yet? I just look at it lovingly and sigh because it's so soothing!
