My Embossed Elements winner!

Top o' the mornin' to you! I'm so happy to announce the winner of my St. Patrick embossing folder giveaway from Monday, so we'll get to that straightaway--then I'll give a little eye candy as a consolation prize ;) .

Here we go: Random.org chose #22 as our lucky number, and that commenter was Amy C.! Congratulations, Amy! I'll be emailing you shortly to get your information.

And now, a little extra embossing inspiration with that fabulous St. Patrick embossing folder that Amy C. has won. I was so impressed recently with a beautiful card that the lovely Greta Hess made that used some partial embossing. I just had to try it out! And this is what I ended up with:


I love how it looks just like someone has just tossed out a hand full of shamrocks that scattered part way across the card. Thanks for the inspiration, Greta!

And isn't that scene full of leprechaun chickies adorable? It was a blast to color with my Copic markers :). Here's a full list of the DeNami Design products that I used to create this card:


Well, thanks for joining me on yet another chilly morning (such that it is here in New England). Fingers crossed that spring arrives soon! We need to melt some of this frozen-solid snow of ours!!

Have a day filled with bliss!
Emily

Amazing that I could do something to inspire you, Emily--sweet to mention that. I do love the partial embossing here--wouldn't have thought to do it with the shamrocks. Darling card! Congrats to Amy.

How adorable with that colorful rainbow and scattering of shamrock. I like the partial embossing.

Congrats to Amy. She'll have fun with that embossing folder.

Awwww...I love your little band of Irish chickies! The partial embossing looks great. Is there a special technique for doing this so you don't get the lines from the edge of the folder?
End of February is near! I count March 1 as spring. I just can't wait until the 21st. lol
Thanks for sharing your sweet card, Emily! :)

Darling St. Pat's card with the chickies and rainbow! Love the use of washi tape, which I thought was ribbon at first! Wonderful embossed background, too!
