Wet and Dry Embossing

It's embossing week at Card A Day Blog and I used both wet and dry embossing on my card. 

On my cream cardstock I stamped and embossed the dress form in the center of the cardstock.  I then centered the dress form in the center of the embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  I applied Evergreen bough distress ink over the raised surfaces and repeated with the Vintage Photo.  I lightly inked the inside of the frame where I stamped the dress form with Vintage Photo.  I wrapped a brown ribbon around the left side of the card.

I used the Lace Ribbon Border punch to punch a strip from the cream cardstock and used Evergreen bough to shade it.  I also inked the edges of the mat with Evergreen bough.
