Make your emboss image pop!

Embossing gives such a professional look to cards; I just love it! Naturals Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper is awesome because the embossing is already done for you with several clear embossed designs. I have an addiction to paper with lines (like notebook paper), so I chose the pattern with lines and flowers to work with. Well actually, there wasn't much work to do because the paper already has an embossed design, so I just had to help it stand out and add some finishing touches.

 I sponged Whisper White Craft ink over the top of the paper to make the design pop. Then I stamped a couple of butterflies from Papillon Potpourri and added those to my card. To keep with the notebook look, I added a 'spine' of Basic Black card stock, embossed with the Needlepoint Border embossing folder.
I finished the card off with a sentiment from Express Yourself (hostess set), on a Whisper White banner, and an Antique brad. Last I popped up the entire top layer of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
