We’ve got a very special guest today! Our very own Rachel Halladay, from CCHQ, has made a tremendous tutorial using the Vintage Floral collection and some of the new Fran·táge elements.

1. Use a piece of Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock and emboss with your chosen embossing folder. Sand back to reveal the core and ink with your favourite Distress Ink and use a Paper Distresser to distress the edges. Matt and Layer your embossed card onto your base card

2. Choose a coordinating paper and lightly sprinkle some Fran·táge Embossing Enamel onto the paper, then crush some matching Fran·táge Mica Fragments over the enamel. (Here I have used Pearlised Mica and Aged Gold Embossing Enamel) Heat from underneath.

3. If you want more Mica, use a sponge and some tacky glue and dab onto the papers then sprinkle the Mica Fragments on top.
