This week, at Shopping Our Stash, the challenge is to use Two Types of Embossing! My initial thought was to emboss strips and do a basket weave, but I was short on time and had to come up with something that could be easily and quickly done!
I decided to do Dry Embossing and a Wet Embossing.
The Gold Gears were cut from Kraft paper and then embossed with Gold Embossing Powder
The burlap and card stock used to make the banners, were leftovers from a previous project I had paper clipped them the to black card stock scrap.. I When I grabbed the black card stock to use as a layer, I noticed how well they worked together and decided to make banners. The printed burlap is probably the elevating element.
I never do well with Man Cards, but this turned out pretty nice and I wasn't really thinking of a man card when I was working on it. This project really put itself together because all these pieces were lying on my very untidy drafting table!
