I am totally delighted to have been asked to be guest designer at the CAS Mix-Up challenge!
Of course I said YES! It is such a cool challenge. The DT supplies ample information about the topic and ones can learn so much! This month topic is quite enticing - it is all about embossing folders. If you are like me, you have a huge supply of them - but rarely used.... I am so glad I had an excuse to put at least one of them in action!
The folder I used here is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I sprinkled Bushos on it and spritzed with water. I then did some embossing folder stamping. I dicut a square window into my card base using a QuicKutz square die. Added the pig (unknown company). The wonky birthday stamp is by So Suzy Stamps. I also added googly eyes to the pig, some white gel pen accents and a little dab of Stickles to the center of the flower.
I just love how this embossing folder background turned out! Go and pull out your embossing folders - so many techniques to try with them!
