CAS-ual Fridays - Embossing


Today i have a card for CAS-ual Friday's Challenge. This weeks challenge is embossing ... any kind of embossing. I went with dry embossing. I used an wood grain embossing folder on brown card stock. Then i used brown ink to add a little distressing to the embossing.

I stamped some cute little acorns in brown. For the acorn cap i used a bronze ink, then added brown on top. These little acorns are so cute!!. I layered the top acorn with a pop up dot and added a brown rhinestone.

I then used a flag to for the sentiment: nut'n better then a friend like you. Behind the acorn and sentiment i added a brown sparkly ribbon to run horizontally across the card. I then layered this embossed rectangle with pop up dots on a cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by!!
