Some elegant embossing

I've unearthed some of my embossing folders which I'd not used in a long time. Having bought a Grand Calibur and getting great results made me try embossing again, I've even ordered some new folders which I will be showing you later. So the details are, embossing sheet by Debbi Moore Flower swirls embossed straight onto card stock. I felt that picking out some of the detail with a Copic pen would give a different look. I used my Cameo to cut a mat in a closely matching paper and the sentiment is one from Silhouette "I care about You", a change from get well I think. I'm totally thrilled with the way the Cameo will cut a small intricate cut with ease. I finished it off with some matching green ribbon and just a tie rather than add a bow to keep with the elegant look I was aiming for. The photo doesn't quite show the sentiment at it's best as the I doesn't show up as it does in reality.
