Daring Card Makers / Birthday Card for a Friend



I have put this card over on the Daring Card Makers blog for this week's challenge which is :
Embossing.
Dry embossing with a light box or with a die cutting machine.
Using embossing powders or triple embossing.
Using pre-embossed papers.
Embossing with found items.
Just have fun playing!
There is some fabulous work on this blog so go on over and have a look - the link in on my challenge links.

The postie came today with a couple of parcels and one included a melting pot which I have been after for quite some time and two cuttlebug embossing folders - hmm... Anyway - I had to give them a go so I have made this card for very non crafty friend. The card has a Tim Holtz stamp in ancient page brown ink. For the main piece I used the script embossing folder from Cuttlebug and a gold rub-on over it, I then tore a coffee cup from a napkin and used my melting pot and some bees wax to stick it down. Over this I stamped two inkadinkadoo stamps onto acetate and attached them with brown organza ribbon. TFL.
