Not Just for Babies!


Here's a card I made for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge 86 today. The Challenge was to make something embossed. So I went for Dry Embossing with the Square Lattice folder in the Big Shot. First I stuck the striped paper onto the Crumb Cake piece, and then that onto the Espresso piece. - Then I dry embossed all three layers!

I really like the look of the Square Lattice - kind of gives a quilted feel!


Here you get a little closer look at the dry embossed background, and also the little bunny! I love this little guy, and even though he's from the Nursery Suite Designer Papers (yes, I just cut him out - I didn't even stamp him! But... if you want him as a stamp, even for FREE until the end of March as a Sale-a-bration choice. He's part of the So Cute set!) - he's not just for baby cards! I think he's just a cute little bunny that can be for any occasion! And, especially with Easter coming up, he's perfect!

The little 'friend' tag is the only thing I actually stamped - it's from the Tiny Tags set. Then it's punched out with the Jewelry Tag Punch, and tied with the Linen thread. ...Linen thread and Crumb Cake Cardstock - kind of like the staples of crafting (at least for me!).


Thanks for stopping by,


Julie
