Naturally Sweet...JUGS35 42

Mona Pendleton | Friday, May 28, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | , ,

Hi There! Time again for another Wild Card Challenge with Just Us Girls. This week Alicia is the Hostess & is challenging us all to incorporate dry embossing when creating.

I made this card for my sister, Tina who will be loving my 2 fur babies & keeping an eye on my house when I am gone on a few upcoming summer vacations ;) I think this is a fun & sweet non-traditional thank you card. What are your thoughts?

Dry embossing is such a crazy popular technique whether you use a Spellbinders Impressabilities™ template ;), an old fashioned scoring tool & ruler, a score board, a light table & stylus, etc.... Whatever product/method you use, we sure would love to see it!

To incorporate dry embossing on this card, I embossed a piece of F-001 Red Premium Craft Foil using the I2-1012 Cherries Impressabilities™ template. If you have never attempted this combo, I suggest you give it a try! It is super easy & the results are stunning! If you haven't already & would like to see a tutorial I shared on a previous post, please feel free to click HERE. I am really have fun using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist these days! Briefly to make the pear you see here, I sprayed Glimmer Mist on a plain piece of cs, dried with craft dryer, stamped with a stamp from the Waltzingmouse Pic-Nic Patterns set, (which by the way comes with some fun, versatile background images), then cut out using a Shapeabilities™ S4-268 Nested Pear die template. (Just in case you like the I2-1012 Cherries Impressabilities™ template &/or the Shapeabilities™ S4-268 Nested Pears die templates they are Limited Edition products & you know what that means! When they are gone, they are gone! I'm just sayin'!

For all the details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls (found on my side bar) as well as LeAnne & Teresa! Once you have your project photographed, be sure to go to Just Us Girls and post a direct link to your project on our site.

Mona, this is one really cute card, and a wee departure from your usual style. I am lovin' those papers that divide up the card, the stitching is always so perfect, and any card that bears a pear is sweet fruit to behold.
