The Bee Hive is doing Faux Embossing

I have a challenge for you this morning please join us over at Betty Bee's Buzz for some Faux Embossing this is such an easy technique and we would love to see your take on it as you can see.........
now I will give you a little tutorial on my card
1. purple card stock cut at 6 x 11 both sides punched full length than folded now you have a 5.5 x 5.5 card base.
2. pink card stock at 5.5 x.5.5 using same punch punch each side adhere to card base.
3. red card stock  4 x 5.25 lay card stock at a 90% angle on score board and score at the 1/2 inch marks all the way down turn again and repeat.
4. cut  1 inch red strips run through the small xyron than punch small flowers from Martha Stewart flower punch adhere to the  diamonds in rows skipping every other diamond.
5. lastly lightly run your inked brayer over top of the scoring and punches to give it some depth and make the faux embossing pop.
6. now you are ready to decorate as you please, easy peasy.
