White Embossing on Kraft Card Stock

Hello friends!
Thank you for checking out yesterday's post for the Neat And Tangled blog hop.
If you missed seeing it, click here.
I decided to share an oldie (made for the last publication call from Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking). As I was clearing my photo files, I stumbled upon this card that I never shared before. This design is really simple. I merely let the image speak for itself. Coloring on kraft card stock is easy to do when the space is small.
you are beautiful inside & out
Instructions:
1.     Make card from card stock
2.     Emboss image on kraft card stock
3.     Color the image with color pencils
4.     Adhere silver string and sequins
5.     Stamp sentiment on pink card stock
6.     Adhere sequins and add pop dots

My take from the stamp set using smaller images.

hearfelt thanks
 I am leaving you a scenic photo that my son David took last summer in Oia, Santorini, Greece.
Thanks for stopping by!

I haven't white embossed on Kraft for ages but this shows how wonderful it can look. I have been to this exact spot in Oia and actually got married in Santorini 10 years go!

Oh this just made me gasp! The white on kraft is just one of my absolute favorites!

Absolutely stunning. Love the embossing on kraft. Need to do this...and the picture looks amazing!

I'm the same as Sandie, I haven't tried this for a long time. I don't have much luck with white embossing (apart from on white) as my coverage is never perfect. But after seeing this, I need to try it again. These are stunning!!

I always forget how stunning this technique is, until I see gorgeous cards like the 2 you created here, Virginia! Love the sentiment on the Doily card. The Heartfelt Thanks card is simply ... STUNNING!
Beautiful photo, gorgeous scenery. I can almost smell the beautiful flowers on the right :-)
