Embossed Gears card

Originally I had punched out the circle strips for the Pizza LO from yesterday's post, but they weren't quite the right colour, so I put them to one side for later use. I embossed some cardstock with a cogs and gears embossing folder (Cuttlebug?), matted it and added the circle strips. The sentiment tag and flourish are die-cut, sentiment to be added later - I may need a male 'Get well' card soon, if not then it'll be a stock birthday card.

This is a very plain and simple card, so much so that I am looking at it and wondering if it needs anything else - but I can't think what! Or should I just leave well enough alone?!

  1. gorgeous-I love plain embossed cards-they are very elegant!!

  2. I think it's lovely, very elegant.

  3. I love it too- but if you're desperate you could pick up some of the raised areas with little random blotches of browns and maroons.... but I think it looks great as is.
