Make it Monday #179 - Emboss Resist Using Diecuts

Good morning friends.  Rainy day here in my neck of the woods, so perfect for playing along with this weeks Make it Monday where Laura shows us how to use our coverplates (and dies) and the emboss resist technique.  I only have one coverplate die (good thing I really love it!!), so my starting point was the chevron design, with clear embossing powder and Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, & Berry Sorbet inks.



Even though it was a beautifully sunny day yesterday when I took my photos, I'm bummed that I couldn't capture all the glossy goodness on the white chevrons, the flower and leaves ("Friendly Flowers") and my sentiment ("Wonderful Words: Hello").  I used clear embossing powder on all of it, and IRL the card is really shiny!  I know my youngest who is away at college will really enjoy receiving this card and adding it to her collection (she's doing the same thing this year as last year, where she tacks up all my cards by her desk so she can always see them!  That makes me feel so good that she does that!! :0) 

There's still time to check out Laura's video and 2 great cards, so why not play along?!  You can find all the info right here .

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday! :0)
