Embossed diamonds revisited

Terribly poor scan (yes, I still need to clean the glass), but thought I'd just show my second thoughts with this card. I embossed the orange card as well as the acetate and ran an orange ink pad over the raised diamonds before sticking the embossed acetate on top of it.

The only thing now is that the sentiment doesn't match - will sort that out tomorrow:

I just had to make something

I didn't do any crafting yesterday and nothing till now today. To be honest, I'm not feeling like doing anything, but thought I'd have a go, although I'm not happy with what I've done.

I decided to make a card for Cuttlebug inspiration 19: embossed acetate. I chose the diamonds embossing folder, ran it through the xyron and stuck it to DCWV textured card - not very clear on the scan - you can see it slightly better if you click on the picture. I'll try in daylight tomorrow to get a photo that shows the embossing more clearly.

I followed the Tamara's card sketch 83:
It's good to see Ooh La La back again with challenge 29: stripes (which are on this card) - and the theme on Created by Hand this week is also 'stripes'.

The background patterned paper is a doubled sides PM silk screened (can't remember what it's called and I'd cut the strip off) - the stripey bit is the other side of the paper. The sentiment is computer generated.

Please also see my later attempt here.

And please don't forget my blog candy - there's less than a week now to be in with a chance to win.
