Hahah.. OK so I would never send a fake thank you out to anyone, but this technique is faux embossing! This was for this challenge on Splitcoast.
The technique wasn't hard at all! It has a great effect on the card and it makes the card look very elegant!
I used Rose red for the card base and a 1 1/2" strip put through my crimper. The 5/8" grossgrain ribbon is also rose red. The next layer is pink pirouette and it is only slightly smaller than a card front. Then the basic gray and baja breeze for the main image. I then covered the corner with prima flowers and silver brads.
