In the Pink!

Today's card is shows the 2nd pattern my new M-Bossibilities folder makes (see yesterday's post for the first one and the "sandwich" I used with my Big Shot).  It really IS nice to be able to emboss a full 5" x 7" card!

Since some of you like to see a bit about my process in designing cards, I have an interim picture on this one.  I started by embossing the card and then lightly inking the raised areas with a makeup sponge.  I had these pink glitter "innies" from a cut I made with my lattice die (that card next week), and I liked the idea of placing them and some sparkley stickers over the embossing pattern in certain spots.  The pink glitter innies were attached with foam tape for more dimension. You might be able to see what I mean better in this picture I took part-way through:
As you can see if you compare this picture with the one at the top of the post, I decided the focal didn't stand out enough and was a bit small, so I double matted it.  That meant I also needed to move some of the sparkley stickers.  The mat was attached with some double sided tape and some foam tape so that it sat at the same level as the other pink glittery pieces.  The "Thinking of You" was then added with more foam tape so it stands out from the mat a bit.  I case you wondered, the focal was cut with one of Spellbinders "Fancy Tags" dies.
