CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Embossing is Back

 

11038090_10152807533067934_701388854599683936_nWelcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett.

Graduation Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Diploma Day Stamp Set, Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Cardstock (White Daisy & Cranberry), Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Versamark Ink, Silver Embossing Powder, Archival Black Ink, and Silver Shimmer Trim.

I have been itching to use this stamp set since I got it and I absolutely LOVE it!  I also bought a pack of 4×4 envelopes not realizing they weren’t standard size so I combined these two need-to-use-items to create this graduation card.  The embossing works very well with this stamp and why not combine this technique with the Paper Fundamentals (which are embossed cardstock sheets).  I cut two cards in White Daisy (p.53 in the Art Philosophy booklet) then one additional card in the Black Embossed paper and cut this in half (one for each card front).  Red and black are the school colors here so I added a thin strip of red border.  You can use your own school colors or keep it neutral.  My daughter said they are cute and has informed me that I need to make a lot more.  I guess I can say that I will get my moneys worth out of this stamp set!!

Now hop on over to Haley Dyer!
