Who Loves You???

Hi Dreamers,
Today's cards are made with dry embossing.   The cards were sent to  Operation Write Home.  I used my folders in a little bit different way.  Take a look.

Owl Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug
Inks: rust and brown
CS: cream, orange, and rust
Ribbon: orange and rust


  • Make A2 size cards from orange and rust CS
  • Cut cream cs 4" x 5.25"
  • Apply ink directly onto the embossing folder and place cream CS in the folder and run through your Cuttlebug ------Clean the folder off with mild soap and water ---the ink will come right off

I did both cards this way and it is interesting  to see the variations you can get.  Try a bunch of them---it is so fun!!

  • Complete the card by wrapping the ribbon around the cream CS
  • Add to the card base
  • Stamp the sentiment

***************A few really fun challenges for my embossing Owls:
Operation Write Home Our Daily Bread Challenge: embossing
Clear It Out: favorite product---I used one of my fav's--embossing folders
Crafting from the Heart: anything goes
Created with Love: critters
Addicted to CAS: grunge + CAS
Rhedd and Rosie's: texture

*******************Coming Up in Dreamland:   I am Guest Designing at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Blog this month.  My first post will be on May 14.  Lots more Operation Write Home cards too.  And, some other fun things.  LOL  See you again soon.  Love ya.
