Happy Tuesday everyone! I have had this waffle paper for some time and nothing seemed to call its name until I saw this sketch from stamping 411. And, for some reason it reached out and grabbed me and I knew it was the sketch I needed to use the waffle paper. And, by using the waffle paper, I was able to use it for the challenge today at SU only challenges. I was so excited. The card actually looks better when it is sitting right in front of you. For the stamped image in the center, I actually used the gold embossing powder for the stamped image and then used markers to fill in around it. I was a little worried at first that I might have messed it up, but when I finished rubbing the color off the embossing, I actually liked the effect. Both the sentiment and the image are popped up using stampin' dimensionals.
