Embossing with wafer dies.

Hi everyone, I've tried a new to me technique on this card, embossing with a die.
It has a lovely quilted feel in real life. 

I also used up leftover negative and positive pieces to make the flowers. I didn't have enough to cover the card, so that's why I thought I'd try the embossing to balance out the design.

I'm linking up to the Happy Little Stampers anything goes with dies challenge.
I've used Memory Box tilth floral and Simon Says Stamp Mum dies.

At Outside the Box the theme is celebrating Mum. You also need to use a Memory Box product on your project.

At CAS mix up card challenge one of the elements needed in inlaid die cutting.
After embossing the card with the die, I glued the negative flower shapes in place, then glued in the petals. The flowers were leftover from another project where I'd diecut them from card painted with Finetec gold watercolours. I've also stamped the tiny for you sentiment.

Memory Box tilth floral and Simon Says Stamp mum dies; Finetec gold watercolour paints; Casual Fridays Mum's the word stamp; versafine ink & clear ep.

Thanks for visiting,

A lovely CAS card. I like how the embossing gives texture to the card and fills the card but keeps it CAS.
