Amuse Fortune Cookie

Ok, so this one isn't quite so simple. But I was really inspired by the stamp and had to go for it. White base card, red and green stock that I embossed with the cuttlebug machine and the fiskars embossing plates. I really wanted the texture to contrast with the fortune cookie. I stamped the fortune cookie and the fortune in brown and embossed it and trimmed it out. The fortune was cut freehand, it is removable and I edged the fortune in red to coordinate with the red layer. The brown thanks is also a cuttlebug diecut -- it is part of the Olivia font set that was on clearance at Michaels -- I didn't realize the alphabet had the welded die cuts until I opened the package.
