extremely fast and easy card

I was playing with a couple of things that I'd ordered from Stampin' Up! I ended up making a card that I liked and it was so incredibly fast and easy to make that I thought I'd share it here.

Here's the card....

The embossing on the card front was made using the Elegant Bouquet A2 textured impressions folder by Sizzix/SU! That is the design of the folder--no partial or selective embossing on my part. The embossed sentiment was made using the Hi embosslit by Sizzix/SU! Since I went with white on white, it looks like the sentiment was embossed directly on the card front. It wasn't. The oval shape is a separate piece of embossed card stock that was adhered to the front. I thought it was a fun look.

So, with two passes through my Big Shot and a bit of adhesive, I ended up with a card that looks like it took a lot more time and trouble to make than it actually did. Now I'll have to see if I can do something similar with other embosslits and embossing folders. :-)
