A Dozen Thoughts

CAS267The CAS challenge this week is to use dry embossing.  I thought and thought about this and decided to do a couple things different with this challenge.  First…instead of using white as my base color, I decided to go with Pool Party.  The other thing is that the challenge is to use dry embossing.  I wanted to keep my card very clean so I went with just the simple cross stitch line of dry embossing.  I think that overall it ended up being a very clean and a little different card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pool Party 3 5/8 x 3 5/8, run through the Cross Stitch Needlepoint Embossing Folder.  Stamp the greeting in Basic Grey.  Add to Whisper White 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and add this layer to the card base using dimensionals.
  • Punch 3 Whisper White Petite Punch flowers.  Punch also from Pear Pizzazz and cut to make leaves.  Add to the back of the flowers.  Punch the 4 petal Itty Bitty Punch from Island Indigo and add to center of each flower.  Add a Pool Party Candy Dot to the center of each flower.  Add flowers to card front using either glue dots or dimensionals.
