Faux Detail Letterpress

Welcome!  This card was inspired by a video by Jennifer McGuire showing how to do Faux Detail Letterpress technique.  I used a Cheery Lynn Die Kiwi Doily that I inked with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and then embossed on Kraft CS.  I cut out the center of the design with Lawn Fawn Stitched circle die and layered on a Red Scalloped Circle cut with Spellbinders Die.  I attached this to a Card base of the Kraft CS that I embossed with Cuttlebug EF Gingham and stamped with GKD sentiment from Nana's Needlework set with the red ink.   I hope you can see all the details on the center.
Challenges:
The Kraft Journal: #225 CAS Embossed
Craft Your Passion Challenge: Always Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge:  Happy Birthday
Seize the Birthday: Anything goes Birthday
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon Says Anything Goes


Thanks to Jennifer for her great video on this technique.
Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
