Who’s The Em-Boss?!

Embossing is the new theme over at Sentimental Sundays this week!  Whether it’s dry embossing or heat embossing, we’d love to see how you incorporate it into your projects for this week’s link-up.

The challenge is sponsored by The Cutting Cafe; they kindly offered the DT two files to use in their projects this week – I chose to use the Rain, Rain, Go Away set, which comes with so many different elements!

For my card, I chose the gorgeous Wellie boots and the cute sentiment.  I made the rainbow in the Silhouette software by adding several offset layers to build up the colours, and then overlaid the sentiment before printing and cutting the image.  The boots and puddle were cut by the Silhouette and coloured with Pro-Markers.  I added touches of Crystal Stickles and Glossy Accents to the boot and puddles to add a little detail.

Now, I hadn’t forgotten that the theme was embossing!  I chose a square of dove grey cardstock and dry embossed it by running the Darice Clouds folder through my Cuttlebug – it doesn’t show so well in the main picture, but it is easier to pick out on the photo below.  Perfect grey cloudy sky backdrop for my lovely bright rainbow!!

What will you emboss on your card?  I could do with some ideas of how to get the most out of heat embossing – I have the tools, but just don’t seem to get it right.  But dry embossing….now you’re talking!!  Can’t wait to see your projects in the link-up!

I’d like to enter this card into the following  challenges:
