Dry Embossing Challenge at For Fun

The challenge at For Fun this week is to use dry embossing on your project, any kind, anywhere, as long as something is dry embossed. You want to make sure you stop by the challenge blog to see all the wonderful creations and inspiration by the design time just for you.

For some reason this was a hard card for me to do cause I really don't do much dry embossing even though there are LOTS of Cuttlebug embossing folders available but I never know what to do with them once they are embossed. Most of my cards are 6" x 6" and the embossed folders won't do a whole page. OH well, I got it done and I kinda like it.

I've been seeing some beautiful white on white cards and wanting to do one, thanks to Olga and Patti for the inspiration. Yep, it's white even though it looks grey. I've either got to get a light box or get a new camera.......ggggggrrrrr. Maybe after the holidays.

Supplies used:
  • Swiss dot and ??? Cuttlebug folders
  • White card stock
  • Gold Spica pen to outline the houses
  • White lace from Really Reasonable Ribbons
  • MS Snowflake punch
  • Snowflakes and dots covered with stickles
That's it from me today. Hope you stop by the For Fun Challenge Blog and enter your card for the challenge this week.  If you have time to leave me a comment it will be much appreciated and I'll be over to see what's new on your blog. Thanks so much for stopping by.
I appreciate you much more than you know. 
"Hugs" Carol
