Petals-a-Plenty

I made a thank you card last night using my latest Big Shot accessory: the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder: I'll be featuring this folder in my Big Shot club night in November.

Deep impression embossing really looks great on the rich Very Vanilla cardstock. When I get some playtime this afternoon I'm using the same layout to make a Christmas card. The petals embossing folder is versatile enough to work for many different styles.

I also used the Hydranga from the Hostess set "Because I care". This was also the first outing for the flower, although I have used the "thank you" phrase alot already. I love this font. Cardstock colours are Very Vanilla, Almost Artichoke and Basic Black, with inks Concord Crush, Nearly Navy, So Saffron and Almost Artichoke. The fold is a "Z fold" - simple to do, but looks very effective while still fitting in a standard envelope.
