Use an Embossing Folder

Hi everyone, thanks for your visit. Today starts a new challenge,
 for the next two weeks at  Cardz 4 Galz .  Babs has chosen
 a technique, which can be simple or you can play with it.
Please pop over to the blog to see the DT Gallery of inspiration.
For my card, I stayed fairly simple, but elegant.
I made grey, white and pink layers for the white embossed square.
Embossing Folder is Christmas Vines but it can look okay for any season. 
I gutted the grey and the pink sheets, to die cut the grey scrolls and
the petals for the flower from the pink. 
For those who don't know what I mean by gutted.  ........
Where only a small edge is needed on your card/paper, and you may
be short of card of the same colour, you can cut out  a 
square from the centre or even directly die cut in the centre.
as long as you leaave  a sufficient border with strength 
to use as your mat or layer.
The dies used were freebies with magazines. 
the greeting stamp is from Honey Doo Stamps.
