I hope everyone's enjoying their Friday?! It's nearly the weekend - woo!
Friday means a new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays and this week it's embossing;
I love embossing! I think I use it on pretty much every card I make in one way or another! After getting all excited I then couldn't think what to make at all - typical! After sitting for a little while and having a flick through my calendar to see what events were coming up, I remembered that one of my best friends has just set her wedding date! How exciting! Whether she'll want me to do/help with wedding stationery, I have no idea, but I thought I'd play around with some ideas for invitations :)
I used both types of embossing on this card - dry and heat embossing. The challenge is to emboss - I embossed! I stamped the image in white VersaColor ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. I then used my blending tool to blend Broken China Distress Ink over the image in and emboss resist - I always love how that turns out, don't know if you've noticed?!! :)
The bottom piece I embossed with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder. Another one of my little addictions is foam adhesive - dimension's important in CAS design I think :)
Anyway, after making this one I was looking at my other Distress Inks and wondering what this would look like in different colours - here's what happened next....
So yeh, I got a little carried away! I think they make a sweet little set though! :)
