Emboss It! (Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Emboss It! Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  With the new Spring/Summer Idea Book, CTMH introduced five Embossing Folders.  I love the different designs - Dots, Chevron, Quatrefoil, Damask, Stripe - and have enjoyed experimenting with them. 

If you arrived here from Vicki's 'The Price of Paper,' please continue hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using the Embossing Folders

For the background, four different papers from the Babycakes kit were adhered to a piece of cardstock and then embossed using the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder.  This creates a subtle, yet cohesive piece for the background.   In order to add just a bit of texture to the sentiment flag, a 'scribble' image from Oodles of Doodles was stamped using Buttercup ink before adding the sentiment from Casual Expressions.   A few different embellishments complete the card, including Babycakes Assortment, Slate Striped Twist Ties, Hexagon Irresistibles, and Grey Sparkles.
