Embossed 3 Ways Card and my Silhouette SD!

A while ago I commented on Kari's blog about how much I loved the emboss folder she used and what is it called and where can I find it etc etc etc! Well she ended up emailing me and telling me that she has double of the same one... and that she would send me the extra just because!!! How amazing is that?! I was so excited that somebody would do that for me, so please head over to Kari's blog KWCardDesign and look at all of her gorgeous crafts!

I received my brand new embossing folder (thanks Kari!) and I made her a thank you card. I wanted to use the same emboss pattern as many times on one card as possible. So it ended up being embossed three ways. 1) the front of the main card stock was embossed 2) the starburst paper on the edge was de-embossed (I actually really love this look)  3) the white scallop was embossed and stamped over the pattern.

It was actually more of a challenge than I thought to use one folder multiple times, but I had a lot of fun with it and I want to try it again but make sure to reeeeally go for the gold and emboss everything!

"How tweet of you!"

Embossed 3 Ways
So Kari you will be getting this and some thank you goodies in the mail soon! Thank you Thank you!

And Yesterday, the day I've been waiting for, my Silhouette SD arrived in the mail!!! Getting packages is great and getting big fancy electronic packages is Fantastic!!!  I haven't installed it yet (I will do that in about 5 minutes) and I'm sure there will be a future post about this. I hope I can figure it out, I can't wait to use it...


And this is the look my dog gives me when I tell him "no" and "stay" because he kept walking in front of my pictures (see the little fur sticking out on the bottom left corner in the SD picture, that's him)....
Ya, he doesn't get told "no" very often, he looks crushed!

Remember to head over to Kari's Blog and show some love! And for anyone that follows, blogger deleted my Travel the World Wednesday: Newport post so I apologize if you missed it ..ugh

  1. Thank you ma'am for the blog love!! It was my pleasure again to send you that folder. It is actually kind of sad when you think about it, that when someone does something nice for you, it is such a surprise and shock, when we shouldn't even think twice about it....that it just it, I didn't think twice about sending it to you. You did a great job on the card, and goodies. You're pretty awesome yourself girl!
