Embossing Extravaganza

(This is my 2nd post today so you can scroll down to see my previous post).


It's all about embossing at Lawn Fawn this week.

I went with a CAS design:

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; patterned paper (My Mind's Eye "Hazel" collection)
Ink: Memento; Copics
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Critters in the Forest; Many Thanks)
Other: Twine (My Mind's Eye); Heart embellishment (old stash); CB Swiss Dot embossing folder

As I said, this is super CAS and simple.  I embossed the front of the notecard with a Swiss Dot embossing folder.  To that I adhered a strip of patterned paper, the sentiment was stamped on co-ordinating patterned paper from MME and adhered with pop dots.  I applied some glossy accents to the bold words in the sentiment, not really visible in the photo.  The little fox was stamped, coloured with copics, trimmed and adhered to the card.

I was so happy when I found that little heart gem which was the right colour as well and went so well with the sentiment.

Thanks for coming to visit and have an awesome day!

Swiss dots are so pretty and really set off this CAS card! Love that sentiment (jealous!) and the heart gem is totally perfect. Love it when you find just the right thing to finish off a project!
