CAS-ual Fridays #69--Embossing


Welcome back, friends!  We've made it to the end of another week!  I am definitely ready for the weekend.  What do you have planned?

One of my favorite things about the weekend--a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays!  Now before you think I've gotten stuck on last week's Top of the Class challenge, let me introduce this week's theme:  embossing!

You can choose heat or dry embossing (or both!) on your clean and simple design, just be sure to link it up for your chance to be a Guest Designer at CAS-ual Fridays and win a gift certificate to use at Simon Says Stamp.



My Paper Smooches stamps have been getting a lot of use lately.  :)  For this card, I paired images from Smarty Pants with the small pocket from WPlus9's A Pocketful.

The white "stitching" on the pocket is heat embossed, and I used PTI's Book Print impression plate on the white panel to go with the school theme.  The pocket was given some added texture with the Linen & Canvas impression plate, too.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, Enchanted Evening), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Smarty Pants), WPlus9 Design Studio (A Pocketful)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black), Versamark, Copic markers
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Book Print, Linen & Canvas impression plates), WPlus9 Design Studio (pocket die), corner rounder
Other:  Filigree (embossing powder)

I absolutely love embossing, so I can't wait to see all of the inspiring designs in the gallery this week.  I hope you'll join us.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

So much fun Christina! I love visiting your site because your cards always seem so finished to me:) You have a knack for putting all those details together. For this card, I really love how you added the unembossed strip for the sentiment and made the center panel smaller so more of the red card stock is showing:) Love it!

Gayatri said...
