You Make My Heart Happy! Embossing over Stamping technique

Check out this BEAUTIFUL rose from All for Love. It's so vintage-y and soft and pretty and can be used to make so many different cards. Watch as I'll have more. :) This was my first time to emboss over stamping. What a fun technique. I think that would be pretty with Christmas cards so we'll see if I remember to play with that idea. ;) This was an a muse studio design and I switched out the image and the sentiment. That's the beauty of cards, you can alter this and that to fit your personal aesthetic and yet still pay tribute to the original designer. :)
