{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Emboss It



Welcome to the third Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in January! This week's challenge is Emboss It which means you can use embossing folders, heat embossing or embossing paste. The design team is featuring Embossing Folders. You don't have to use them but we'd love to see them if you have any!


My card features the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bricked embossing folder. I let the fabulous sentiment from Kelly Purkey's I Like You stamp set lead me. This card is perfect for a friend or loved one who's helped you through a bad day, kind of like when you hit a wall and need help climbing over it. Haha.


Since the sentiment involves drinks, I die cut glasses using Paper Smooches' Free Spirits Icons. Tone-on-tone grey ones line up along the base of the card and a red one tucks nicely into the frame. I layered the Duo Dio 2 frame in vellum with the medium Scallop Frame in glimmer cardstock to highlight the magical part of the sentiment.


One winner will be chosen at random to win a $50 gift voucher to the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store!


It could be you!



I hope you will play along with us this week!



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)

Wow! Love the pop of red on the greys!!! And the tone on tone glasses at the bottom are incredible!! And I am just in LOVE with the layered frames and offset sentiment! Just when I think glitter and vellum can't go together any better - BAM!

Emily - that card is amazing. So sophisticated with your choice of colors, but so funny as well. I have pinned it for further inspiration.
