I love the ease of using pattern paper. I utilize the pattern paper from New Day Card Kit (shop Altenew, Simon Says Stamp)

Embossing a Detailed Background

If you are here for Altenew Blog Hop and Giveaway, please click here.
Hello friends!
you are the sweetest-002


I am popping in with another post about Simon Says Stamp Release.
You can see my previous post about the same stamp here.

The Rebecca Lace Background is truly intricate and detailed. 
However, how does it look with embossing?

you are the sweetest
The shine that it adds is absolutely amazing.
I used the ink-smooshing technique to create the colorful background.
you are the sweetest-001
I hope your day is as bright as this embossed card. 
Thanks for stopping by!
