Embrace Life CAS style

Wow, the weekend is almost here!! But, today is Thursday, and that means another CCEE Stamper's Challenge. This week we were to use Embossing Folders somewhere on your card. If you don't have embossing folders, you could use a stencil and a stylus.

I used a Sizzix Embossing folder for my bg, and framed it with some scored lines that I made with my Scor-Buddy. I used an EK success punch along the border.

I made this a CAS card because my stamp room is still in the works. The painting is done, I'm just moving stuff back in and organizing. Man...it sure was a lot faster moving everything out. :)

For the main image, I stamped the flower from Verve's set Great Friend, onto some K&Company dp with Versamark, and embossed it with white ep. I then cut each layer out and popped it up with dimensional tape. I used a sentiment "Embrace Life" from Verve's set Dream Big. The stem was made with the Sizzix Flourish #9 die.

For the flower center, I added some Viva Decor Transparent Gel and glitter. I also added some glitter dots along the stem. They're hard to see since they're white on white, but if you click on the photos, you can see them, and the flower center better.

That's it for my simple card today. Be sure to head on over to the CCEE Stamper's Blog to see what the other girls came up with. We'd love to have you join us also.

Happy stamping!!
Tosh
