Love: Midweek Throwdown Dry Embossing

Happy hump day everyone!  Today's Midweek Throwdown over at Operation Write Home is to use dry embossing in your card.  I'm a huge fan of dry embossing!  I'm also a fan of searching the net for great ideas used by our card maker friends.  I love to CASE cards, especially when I don't feel the mojo or time is short and I still want to make cards.  I recently saw this card by Linda over at Paper Cutting Kind of Day.  She has this cute card made with symmetrical embossing and brads, how cute and CAS! I added my little spin to her card by creating a raised matted center panel.  I popped up the pastel one on dimensional foam tape and kept the b/r one flat.  Thanks Linda for the inspiration.




Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Hearts
Brads:  Round:  Paper Studio
             Hearts:  Recollections
Scotch Double Sided foam tape "precious"

  4. I just love the small embossed section as the focal point of your card. Great layers. I too, will CASE cards when I"m looking for inspiration.

  5. Wonderful use of the brads. I love seeing stuff like this, because I never think about doing something like it (until after I've seen it done). TFS!
