CAS Mix Up Nov. 2018

Hello friends.  Playing along with this months challenge over at CAS Mix Up where they are looking for embossing folders used on your cards.


Here's what I came up with:


I used 2 different embossing folders, die cutting, Color Bursts, and stamping...BUT, my stamping is on the inside!  I just couldn't bring myself to add anything else to the outside of this card, so the stamped sentiment on the inside will have to do!!  My Color Burst panel was actually made a long time ago and was in my stash box, but I believe the color I used was Crimson and I had run it through a brick embossing folder.  I know it doesn't make much sense to have a family of deer up against a brick wall, but the contrast of the black silhouette against the Crimson color and surrounded by all the white was just to perfect to not use!  The die cut is using an AliExpress die I received as a gift last year (thank you friend!!) and the snowflake embossing folder I used is from Darice.


This challenge is open till the 24th and there is so much BEAUTIFUL inspiration from the DT, so check it all out and play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  6. Gorgeous colorburst and dry embossed brick wall for your deer, Marcia. The deer in our area can be seen just about every where, so I can visualize them up against a brick wall, my friend! Beautifully framed with the white snowflake EB folder too. TFS Hugs..Nancy

  7. SO COOL!! LOVE your double embossed card Marcia!! The deep red of the center panel is gorgeous with the brick embossing and the black silhouette. The contrast is awesome! Speaking of contrast ... adding the white snow embossed framing really makes a statement. This is a STUNNING design, my friend! xx
