“Grateful, grateful, truly grateful, I am.”
This was a card that we made at stamping classes last week and was our first attempt at “dry embossing.” The technique, which can be found on YouTube, uses a handmade template made with three thicknesses of the cardboard that is in the back of a package of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and leaves a blank space in whatever embossing folder we are using. (Just cut out the design you want left blank with an exacto knife…in this case it was a rectangle to accomodate the Woodgrain embossing folder, but it can be a circle, it can be the outline of a tree, an acorn…anything we want! On this card it left a space for the beautiful “Thankful” stamp from the new “Six Sayings” hostess stamp set. I added some of last year’s wooden embellishments inked with Cajun Craze and Tip Top Taupe and some gold cord to complete a card to express how thankful I am to you, my Stampin’ Up! friends, for sharing your artistry and your friendship. Happy Thanksgiving!
