Let's Celebrate Embossing!

Welcome to the Studio!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm today's designer over at the Card A Day Blog.  Our theme this week is embossing and there's some really great cards from the designers.  If you haven't stopped by CABD yet, be sure to visit so you don't miss out!

When I was putting this card together, the white panel helps break up all the bright colors and gives the eye a place to rest, but without the embossing and texture, it would be BOOOORING.  And who wants to give a boring birthday card anyway?

I teach a card class once a month and this was one of my more recent class kits.  I love the accordian fold rosettes.  They are so much fun and really add a lot to cards and layouts.  The embossing folder I used is Sizzix.  White Daisy cardstock, Cotton Candy ink, and Sunset ink is from Close To My Heart.  The "Let's Celebrate" is from Justrite Stamps.  The vellum "doily" was cut out using the Lifestyle Crafts eyelet nesting die.  Everything else used for this card is what I call "off-the-shelf" from Hobby Lobby.  I found everything I needed, including the vellum, in the open stock paper section.

I'm planning on having a few layouts up after this weekend.  I'll be cropping with some friends all day Saturday...Woo Hoo!  I have a ton of page kits packed and can't wait to get started.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Until next time, Scrap Sassy!
