Heat/Dry embossing - CraftyHands DT

Aaaaand good morning to all! And happy Valentines day. As you read this, I am probably on my way to my son's school armed with home made cupcakes to sell during break time!

To start with, there's still a couple of days to join in with my candy, or to make a card for my little challenge. We have 5 gorgeous entries so far, but it would be awesome to see a couple more!

Now, on to today's business, which just happens to be the new CraftyHands challenge. The theme? Heat or dry embossing.

Now, folks that have been paying close attention to my blog, will probably have noticed a distinct lack of embossed cards here to date. There's a very simple reason for that... I've not really made any! lol. (maybe a grand total of two since I started this crafting malarkey!) After getting my die-cutting machine a few months ago, I have been mainly trying to build up a selection of dies, and don't really have much in the way of embossing folders yet. In fact, I have exactly 2!

So, I am new to this. But I managed to (with the help of Google) figure out what sandwich I needed, and away I went. And because it is valentines day, my card ended up looking somewhat like this:


I used a fab stamp and sentiment that came free with a mag about a year ago (not used before today) and had some fun playing with different types of card candi to fill in the circles on the stamp.

And now it's your turn! Go check out what the rest of the CraftyHands team have cooked up for you, and then join us with an embossed creation of your own! You could very well win this fab set of punches!
I for one adore the X-cut punches... They're so much easier to use than others!


See you there!
