Sunday's Bits & Pieces #27

Hi there!!

For those that visit my blog, i know i've been MIA the past two weeks!!! My classes started and all of the sudden i got a lot of hours at my part time job and i had a project for a friend to complete. This weekend is the 1st that i have had off in two weeks, so i have been enjoying it making card (and yes a little studying!!)

I made many cards and projects this weekend, but i can only show you one! The others are for Hampton Art and can be seen on their blog in a few months! And hopefully this coming weekend i can show you the project i worked on for a friend!

On to the card!! Its been awhile, so i wanted to make a card for CAS-ual Friday's. This weeks challenge is embossing, any kind of embossing.

For my card i did dry embossing. I found a big piece of green cardstock (this card will be made from the bits and pieces in my scrap drawer!) and used an embossing sleeve to get a notebook impression. Then i inked up the raised portions with a brown ink pad.

Next i used a texture tool and distressed the edges. Then i found piece of pattern kraft paper, i stamped the image on one side and again on the other. I cut out one of the girls from the red plaid side and adhered it to the other side. I also stamped a G at the top and bottom for 'girls'

I wrapped twine around the embossed panel and added the girls card with a tiny paper clip. Oh and i almost forgot i added a little white distress Stickles to the red plaid girl.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! While i probably will not be posting as often because of school, hopefully another 2 weeks will not pass without a post!! :)
