This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is "Emboss It". I have a wonderful relationship with my Cuttlebug and LOVE to add embossing to my projects, so this was a fun one for me!
I created my card using Inspired Heart as a base. The snow angel girl is from Winter Frolic. I embossed the background mat of the card and also the girl's snow jacket. I punched a border using a Martha Stewart punch and then added the negative cuts around the card. (I punched some in white as well.) I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen stamp. I also used a My Craft Spot stamp (from Inside and Out #2) for the card. The outside reads: Each and every year you grow. I heat embossed this as well. Inside reads: You just become more fun to know!
I created this card for one of my best friends. We've known each other since our younger school days. Michelle LOVES snow. Her house is decorated with snow-related items - and whenever it does snow, she is outside building snowmen and making snow angels! She is one of the funniest people I know and I knew she'd get a kick out of this card, despite her birthday being in June!
When I lost my photos at the beginning of the month, the picture of this card was one of the few that I could not retrieve. (I had worked ahead on my design projects, knowing how intense this month would be with my courses.) I actually had to ask my friend for the card back to take another photo!!
Please head over to My Craft Spot and link your embossed project. I can't wait to see what you make!
