Scratch & Sniff Cards

I love to discover new techniques and a little while ago I figured out how to make a scratch & sniff card, but then I lost my mojo and didn't really do anything with it. With a team meeting coming up, I dusted off the technique and made this orange scented card:
I wasn't really all that happy with it, I think because orange really isn't my colour, so I then made this strawberry scented card, which was my contribution for the shoebox swap.
After all of the girls left, I made this coffee scented card
If you want to make your own, you just mix together equal parts of clear embossing powder and a powdered drink, then emboss as usual.

These are all gorgeous, Leonie (yes, including the orange one!!). I've never tried this technique; must give it a go. I LOVE the 'coffee' card - it's wonderful.

These all look fab and I'm sure they smell delicious too! I haven't tried this technique either.

I love the orange one for sure. Next time try orange and pink and you might like orange better! the colors go perfectly together. Your coffee card is cute as well! I am afraid they would just make me hungry! Have fun!
