Since I have a few embossing diffusers from Darice and now solid backed shape dies I created a simple embossed card with a smooth oval center. The sentiment is the star of this card. Julie Ebersole showed this technique and reminded me how lovely and rich is Delicata's Golden Glitz pigment ink,
I placed my cardstock into the embossing folder, closed it and then placed the diffuser on top. I ran it through my cuttlebug, and after it was embossed, I placed the diffuser over the embossed piece and ran a stylus around the oval opening, to help set it off a bit from the other embossed areas.
I used Wink of Stella pens (not brush markers) to color in some of the slanted rectangles; I wanted them to appear a bit like confetti raining down ( I might have gone a bit overboard). I stamped the big greeting with the Golden Glitz ink, this stamp is form SSS's Happy Every Day set. Every time I see it used I think why don't I have that set. I bought it recently, and this is my first inking. I was please to see it fit perfectly into the oval space the diffuser created.
Below is a close up, odd the colored bits are the debossed parts, funny how in the photo it looks just the opposite.
