Emboss it!!

Hello peeps  I am here with my DT card for

a new one starts today and we would like you to "emboss it". A chance to get out your long forgotten embossing folders or embossing powders or embossing boards even dies, the possibilities are endless!!
Just remember that your image MUST be CUTE!!

Here's what I did using a lovely image from our sponsor

I coloured Harriet with SN blendable pencils to match the MME papers and then created a bit of interest by dry embossing the edge of the hexagon frame (chosen to co-ordinate with the papers and embossing folder).

The chicken wire embossing board was a freebie.  I inked the concave side of the folder with embossing powder before running it through the Grand Caliber, then heated clear embossing powder over the whole piece. The raised areas picked up the Teal Zeal Momento ink (applied with cut 'n' dry foam) and the shiny embossed areas resisted it.

The finishing touch was by way of a sentiment stamped onto a tag.

I don't know why, but I really do love embossing on cards, and really should do it more often. Love your sweet card hun. Have a lovely day today. It's not too bad here today, looks like it might even stay dry. Although that means I need to do some tidying in the garden. The rain gives me an excuse to stick my nose glitter deep in my craft desk! :0)
