emboss and blend technique

This card uses the blend and emboss technique and is super easy to make.

I am always thinking of ways to make cards that are quick, easy and are pretty.

I love how the combination of blend and emboss techniques gives an interesting focal point for this card.

If you look closely, you will see some water splatters added.

You can totally leave those out of the design.
