AAA Birthday Challenge - Game #27 Use an embossing folder

Hello everyone! Can you believe it's July already? Well today we're kicking off the July challenge over at AAA Birthday Challenge blog and the theme this month is Use an embossing folder.

For this card I was greatly inspired by a video I watched recently from Jaycee Gaspar - find it here. I was just playing around with different embossing folders and trying different things and although this is very dark and much different to my usual style I totally love the look!
I used Memory Box Chrysanthemum Field 3D embossing folder. Obviously I used a black ink (Versafine Onyx Black) and applied all over the embossing folder which really made the flowers stand out.

Using the technique from the video I tore the sides of the paper and decided to back it with a couple of layers of gold embossing powder (Hero Arts) and plattered on some diluted gold acrylic paint. The My favorite things Hooray die also received a couple of layers of embossing powder, as did the sentiment which is also MFT (Monster Sized).

That's it! I feel this would be a perfect card for a guy - don't you?

If you're still here, thank you so much, I do appreciate it!
Don't forget to hop on over to the AAA Birthday blog to check out the other DT cards and join the fun!

Stay safe!
Happy crafting!
