Hey, well love this technique where you mask off parts of your black card base. Then you emboss the areas or squares left! I then embossed the sentiment just to add a little something extra to this card. I love the various glitter/embossing powder. I love this shabby chic embossing powder from stampendous. The only thing is that the powder bag left a little white residue on the card, but I find the inkadinkado one works better than the EK success one I have.
