Using the embossing folder to achieve this look is great Coops it adds so much texture and interest. Loving your card. Annette x

Elaine said...

Fabulous card Nic.
I love the stepped card and the colours are another of my favourites, I adore browns (and blues).
I also wouldn't have noticed the sock or even realised if you hadn't mentioned it, so I appreciate the heads-up or I would've done the same thing myself.

Hugs Elaine xxx
