Ivy Lane Loves Embossing

The Ivy Lane Card Workshop on the Go (WOTG) kit is one of my favorite WOTG's in a while!
The paper pack alone is stunning - my grandma told me (as she got one of the cards for Mother's Day), "this is one of my all time favorite and prettiest cards you've given me." *blush* #thrilled!

I am not one to stick to patterns.. I always like to change them up and see what else i can do with them.  So here some inspiration on how to enhance the Ivy Lane Cards.  

Subtle changes to this one - the WOTG pattern is the bottom left card.  To change it up, I used the Close to My Heart embossing folders to add some texture to the Hollyhock cardstock pieces.  Because CTMH's paper has a white core, there is some natural distressing going on when you emboss!  You can see it in the Damask pattern above.

I also added in the Bronze Shimmer Trim to compliment the kit.  The Gold Shimmer Trim is awesome & limited to this kit ONLY.  Can't wait to use it on some other projects!  The other accessory I added in were the Pink Glitter Gems as additional bling.

Again, the top left card is the WOTG style - I changed up the others either by swapping out the gold shimmer trim with the Bronze or the sequins with the pink glitter gems.  I also used the back of the floral paper on the bottom left card for something different.  Additionally, I rounded the corners on some of them too.

These turned out to be my favorite of the three cards.  The top left card is the WOTG pattern, unaltered.  I embossed three of the brown pieces, which you can see above - it really spruced them up! Supplementing in the Rosewood Collection mini-melody accents really blingged it up!

LMK if you have any questions & hope you enjoy this card kit as much as I did.  Don't be afraid to change it up!

Happy Scrappin'
