Darice has a package of Easy Frames that are used with embossing folders.  There are 7 different ones in the package with various shapes.  When using an embossing folder the paper is placed inside the folder as usual and then one of the Easy Frames are placed on top of the embossing folder and then run through the Cuttlebug (or other machine) as you normally would.  This leaves a blank area where a design can be stamped.
I stamped these flowers from the Penny Black "A Bunch" clear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored them with Copic markers.  After coloring the flowers, I used a Copic C1 or C3 to outline the entire design which helps to make the image pop.
The embossed piece was matted with SU Lavendar  Lace card stock and then mounted onto the white card base with foam squares.
I was really glad I had this card on hand because we suddenly had three funerals here in our small community and I thought this card could be used for one of them as a "thoughts and prayers" card.
Thank you for coming by today!
