Kaboodle Doodles # 76 - Embossing

Hi blog buds hope you all had a great weekend - albeit a wash out!!!!  Don't you just love the English summer!!!!!

Well its Monday again and that means Kaboodle Doodles challenge time.  This week the theme is Embossing and our sponsor is The Paper Shelter - do check out there website for some fab images!

and here is my DT card:-

 For the embossing I had a card in my stash that I have had for a while which I have embossed using a stencil which I had borrowed from a crafty friend.  I had to use lots of shims!!!  The stencil fitted the size card perfectly I thought, and my cute bear I resized to fit within the inner circle!  I have dusted over the embossed pattern with some shimmer chalks but not sure you can see that straightaway...

I think you will agree a typical "Tina style" card, clean, fresh, simple and an added bit of sparkle!!!! LOL

Thought I would enter my card into the following challenges too:-

Enjoy your week and..

Happy Crafting

Hi Tina, Great card pretty gems and a cute bear. Did you know there's a No More Shims embossing mat from 'Once upon a stamp' that you can use instead of card shims? It works really well:0) Thank you for your lovely comment on my cards and congrats on your new DT status, well done, Gay xxx

simple yet classy card, Tina!

Yes, I *can* see that bit of shimmer you put on your embossing! I knew I saw a hint of color there. :) So you hand-embossed that?? Wow! Very impressive.
