Addicted to CAS ~ January Challenge

We're back .... It's a new year and a new month and it's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. Our challenge this month is

When you see the word, "EMBOSS", what do you think of - heat embossing or embossing with an embossing folder and your Big Shot? For me, I thought of using an embossing folder. 

I had recently organized my embossing folders by embossing a small piece of cardstock, labelling it with the company and folder name and placing it in a "trading card" pocket sleeve. I have them in a duotang folder. It's so much easier to pull out the folder and flip through the embossed samples to find one I want to work with.

Right ... onto my card

I started with Provocraft Cuttlebug's Victoria embossing folder and black cardstock. I rubbed cracked pistachio distress ink over the panel with a cloth (I could have used my finger but didn't want a colored finger tip!). I trimmed the panel down (to make the card, clean and simple). For the sentiment, I stamped using a sentiment stamp from Paper Smooches' Good Gab stamp set onto some pale teal cardstock. I adhered everything onto a black A2 card panel. 

Hope you're inspired by this month's code word. We'd love to have you join us.
