As You Like It

As You Like It Challenge

Today As You Like It has a lovely sponsor and theme.

First our sponsor is :-

Our Theme is :-

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using
your Favourite Hear or Dry Embossing (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

My favourite is dry embossing. I love the stunning effects it creates. 

I made this card for my son and daughter in law when they were married last year. I think the dry embossing gives is a very romantic feeling.

I used Cuttlebug embossing folder, Pebbles chalks, Spellbinders heart dies, Craft Tonic border punch and the rest from my stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-


  1. A really beautiful cross-over design and pretty subtle shades of ink highlighting the embossing, gorgeous.

  2. A fantastic effect, I would never, in a million, think of colouring the raised areas!! Thanks for the inspiration xx

  3. I love all the details on your very elegant card. The criss-cross design really shows off the beautiful embossing!

  4. Very beautiful. I love it. Thanks for joining us at Craft Your Passion.
