Craft Hoarders Anonymous - Challenge #12 - Who's the Boss?

Good morning everyone and welcome to Craft Hoarders Anonymous - Challenge #12 - Who's the Boss! Show some embossing on your project.  You can use dry embossing or heat embossing.  You can use an embossing folder or a stencil.  You can emboss with embossing paste or embossing powder...you can even create something with ultra-thick embossing enamel.  You probably have some sore of embossing apparatus in your hoard! So pull them out and put them to use!


I used an embossing folder from Crafter's Companion for the white card base and then on the blue, I used the same folder and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  It gives my card a totally different look.    I used seam binding colored with a Spectrum Noir marker for the bow and a little bird image from my stash.  I love how my card turned out.  It was very easy to make but I think it packs a punch.

Our sponsors for this month are Crafter's Companion and Spectrum Noir

Beautiful card Glenda! I always think embossing adds so much to a project. Plus it is just fun to do all the various forms of embossing. Have a great week!

Sweet, tweet, tweet!! Love your embossed and colored background. It's the perfect accent for your main image panel. . and then the base panel embossing just adds so much additional character. . oh and that scrumptious seam binding! Most lovely!!

Just a gorgeous card! The heat embossing really adds that perfect finishing touch. I've heat embossed at card classes but haven't yet made the jump to doing it at home on my own. Might have to make a trip to Michael's this week!
Hope you're having a great summer!
