Papillon Dreaming

Here's yet another card we will be doing at my upcoming Private Class.  I have been planning these projects to tantalize the newbie stamper by using products that I feel are good investments.

Today's card once again uses the magnificent Big Shot.

My card from yesterday used the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder while today's card uses the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.

Embossing folders make deep impressions in a single sheet of paper when run through the Big Shot.

Embossing Folders

What is really great about embossing folders is that they only cost $7.95 yet make such an astounding difference. So once you get a Big Shot of your own, you must stock up on a full arsonry of embossing folders at such a reasonable cost.

Now, I don't expect newbie stampers to purchase a Big Shot their first day, but I don't want to deprive them of a taste of the Big Shot wonders. Truly the Big Shot is a wondrous contraption that makes dreams come true.

Here's the card that features the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.

Do you see the dreamy Woodgrain embossing? I love how it looks in Very Vanilla.  Simple yet elegant.

The other colors adding to the simplicity of this card are Island Indigo and Crumb Cake. I can never get enough of these colors.  They're just so satisfying.  I stamped the background butterflies in Crumb Cake to add to the "dream". The extra touch of Crochet Trim with a button tied with Linen thread are simple touches for just a bit of "je ne sais quoi."
