A Quick Thanks!

Today I have been playing around with embossing for the Lawnscaping Challenge #34:  Embossing.  I used a border die to do some embossing on the front and back of the card front to get two different looks.  I chose the border die because of the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger:  Mantastic:

As soon as I saw this awesome rug, I knew I would be using my Leafy Vine border die.  It was MADE for this challenge!  Between the two challenges, my card almost made itself.  ;)  Here it is:

Stamps: Think Big Favorites #15 (PTI)
Dies:  Leafy Border (PTI)
Inks:  VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Paper:  Dark Chocolate, Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy (PTI)
Misc:  White Embossing Powder (Hero Arts), Bling (Basic Grey)


  1. Wow what a cool use of the vine die for the embossing! I am going to have to try this out!!! Great card! Love it!

  2. Love how you reversed the dry embossing - great idea and full of possibilities! Great take on the trigger!

  3. This is just too cute!!!! I love how you used both sides of the embossing folder! What a fantastic thank you card! Thank you so very much for joining us at Lawnscaping!

  4. Wow, this is just plain awesome and so very clever. Really, truly an amazing card. Love the colors, love the way you've used a die cut, everything!

  5. You're right, that die was made for this challenge. You card is so graphic; I love it!

  6. This is just fabulous, great embossing and take on the challenge

  7. hi, how did you embodd with the die ?

    1. My stack goes something like: bottom hard plate, slim bottom plate, squishy embossing mat, cardstock, die, thin top plate. If that makes sense. It will depend on the machine you use though. If you google it, I'm sure there are tons of videos! ;)
