Hi everyone! Happy Valentine's Day! I hope your day is filled with lots of love! Today I'm sharing the card I made for this week's Woodware USA challenge, to use either kind of embossing. I chose to use both, and put my new Glasses stamp set to use.
I wanted to go for a more masculine card here, so I chose frames that look like the ones my dad wears. :) I had to do a bit of paper piecing because the parts that go over your ears looked like they were in the front, and not behind the lenses. I stamped the sentiment underneath the glasses, and used a bit of lime green chalk to color the inside of the Nestabilitie. For the wet embossing, I took the eye chart stamp and repeatedly lined it up on the turquoise cardstock. I used clear embossing powder for a tone-on-tone look. The dry embossing was done with a Sizzix folder and some light yellow cardstock. For fun, I added a bit of Fiskars border-punched cardstock and some Making Memories twine. I added a lime green button to tie in the lime green chalk. I think the kraft cardstock helps keep the card more masculine looking.
I'm still having a bit of trouble with my camera. Unfortunately the colors came out a little weird here... the paper looks blue in the picture rather than a greenish-turquoise and the yellow looks like a bright yellow and not pastel. I think the lime green chalk looks yellow in the picture, too. Ehh. I'll just have to keep playing with my camera settings and hope that one day I figure it all out! :)
I hope you have time to play along with us over at Woodware USA, we'd love to see what you can do with embossing! Hope you all have a happy hearts day!

PS- I'll try to get the rest of my Valentine's Day cards/gift packaging posted before the end of the week. Stay tuned!
