CAS-ual Fridays #69

Hello!! Are you ready for another super fun CAS-ual Friday Challenge? This week's theme is every stamper's delight-- EMBOSSING!! Is it the very technique that got you started in stamping? Well, it did for me! I remember the first time I tried embossing, I was mesmerized by the finished textures on my card and I was hooked ever since!
birthday greetings
This card is entirely embossed (except the SRM Stickers for the sentiment). The Lattice background and butterfly were embossed in white and pink respectively.

I hope you find time to create something embossed. Please link up your CAS project to CAS-ual Fridays by noon Sept. 13, Thursday (Eastern Time). I am counting down the days for Scrapfest (by Archiver's) in Minneapolis in less than a week (squeal!!). Got to start packing...again!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Now how did you emboss such a large area without something going wrong? Do you use one of those de-static pads or something? AH-mazing. Love it, Virginia!

Simply beautiful! I especially love the butterfly. The pink embossing on Kraft paper is so pretty :). I must get some pink embossing powder :)

Julie Hoffman said...

This is GORGEOUS Virginia!! I love the layout! Love the coloring!! Great idea using a sticker on the embossed panel for your sentiment. It's really hard to stamp on the embossed paper. Those two pearls add a perfect flow from the butterfly to the sentiment!!!
