KL Stampin N' Scrappin #38 ~Dry Embossing




Hello Stampers and Happy Saturday!

This weeks KL Stampin N' Scrappin Challenge is all about Dry Embossing your cards. Now this is definitely a fun challenge because it is so versatile! You don't have to wrack your brains too hard for this challenge at all, just get crafty and let your creativity flow!

I made an Aperture card and dry embossed the top mat with my Cuttlebug embossing folder (Numbers Collage). I also dry embossed the oval cutout with my Swiss dots folder for contrast. The inside of my card is decorated with design paper, my C.C. Designs image (Sweet Treats) and birthday sentiment. Because I wanted the embossing to stand out, I kept my card rather simple.
