Yvonne Yam always has the most interesting guest designers and I am not just saying that because I was one :>) . I love to play along with the challenges, but sometimes the challenges are well, a challenge! The latest guest is Ujjwal Gupta and she is challenging everyone to use embossing on a simple card (the deadline is July 1st!). Well, I am sure many of you are thinking that is an easy challenge. It turned into a multiple challenge for me. I could have gone the dry embossing route, but it has been so long since I used embossing powder. First, I had to find my powder. That took 15 minutes. Then I had to actually emboss. I now remember why I do not emboss. I make a huge mess!!! Then, too top it all off I ended up sticking my fingers on my first attempt before the embossing dried.
After all that, here is what I ended up with.
This is all embossed and I admit, the embossing gives this otherwise CAS card a bit of ooomph. Just enough shine and just a bit of dimension. Okay, I like the results. I just don't like the mess.
