No Worries Mates!
Absolutely, positively my next Make It Monday Video is going to be on the embossing technique shown on this card. Might not be until the end of April between assignments, the monthly countdown, and my sister's bridal shower--but when you stumble on a great idea like that, you tend to earmark it for other variations and projects.
Cara was nice enough to post the sandwich in my comments section. I'll just cut/paste. I really want to emphasize strongly that the cutting side of your die is not to face into your Impression Plate. You will ruin it. Cutting side into the paper. Sear it into your brains:).
Sandwich for double embossing:
impression plate facing up
die cutting side facing up
paper facing down
tan and vanilla embossing pads
And just because I have a few unseen cards, why don't I post one? Here's a little mash up (somebody called mixing two stamp companies by that name the other day and I loved it) between PTI and Hero. Adore those birdies from Little Bitty Bird. Sentiments are from All About You.
Another item to be aware of--there's a new Papertrey Radio episode up on Nichole's blog today. Chit chat.
I seem to have a new hobby--making Eliza Jane headbands with PTI felt and Bloom Builders dies. Not that there is any hair there to hold back! Cannot stand the cuteness. Her head is so darn big that she's wearing little girl headbands already.
And lastly, if anybody is going to be down in DC tomorrow, look for Hank and I out on the Mall for the National Kite Festival. High on my list of things to do with him. Glad we're getting out alone together. Just happens to coincides with the Cherry Blossom Festival. Oy fey, it's going to be busy. And after that circus, we'll be checking out the Bug Zoo at Natural History. Cracks me up that it is sponsored by Orkin.
