Sweet Baby Card

>> Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Just a quick post to show you a card that I made the other day but couldn't post because our internet connection hadn't been hooked up yet. 

I am really excited about this one because I tried something new - I embossed.  I know, I know, embossing is kind of old school but I have honestly never tried it before.  Well, I have done a bit of dry embossing with the Fiskar's embossing thing, but I had never ever tried the "real" thing.  Actually it was one of those things I swore I was never going to get into - like sewing on layouts, which I now do ALL the time. The only reason I even had any embossing powder was because I picked it up for like $0.10 at the thrift store one day thinking that my sister might want it. 

Well, it turns out that the whole embossing thing is actually quite easy and I discovered that I do not need a heat gun as my ribbon iron works very well to melt the powder.
