Timeless Tuesday - Release Week!!

Yeay! It's Release Week at Flourishes - I LIVE For This ;)
Today being Timeless Tuesday, Flourishes has offered up another challenge. Today's challenge is : Double Embossing! You can find the tutorial HERE. If you play along you could win a GC from Flourishes. You can find all the details out HERE.

I made a card that played on the same design and theme that I used last year for our Christmas cards, but I made it into a fall theme.

I used Flourishes "Apple of My Eye" stamp set for the sentiment and the Caramel Apples. I colored the apples in with Tombows and added Glossy Accents to the apples and bows, then I cut them both out with my craft knife. I stamped an Italian script on to some paper to use as my background paper and embossed it with a Sizzix folder. Then I cut out some "windows" with my Scalloped Squares Spellbinder die. After cutting out the windows I added a stamped word acetate in the "windows". I added a border with my EK Success "Swiss Dots" punch and placed popdots under the front or top layer, to pop it off of the paper behind it. I added some lace, a Spellbinder Fancy Tags diecut with a Fleur de Lis accent on top of it. Then I added my sentiment and a Prima flower and some hat pins on my Fleur de Lis accent piece.

Here are my Christmas cards my husband and I came up with last year (Yes, he loves to help me with our Christmas cards :). We made a red and a green version of them.
This one is the red one we sent out.

Here are the green versions.

We really had fun coming up with them and the assembling them part. He was interested in seeing how all my tools worked :) Now to only come up with this years Christmas cards.... :)
