Embossing at the Joanna Sheen Challenge

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are having a good weekend.

Today is the start of a new Joanna Sheen Challenge.
This week our theme is

Embossing (dry or heat)

As always the wonderful prize for the lucky winner will be a £15 voucher to spend online at Joanna Sheen.

After printing a cute image from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse Project CD Rom, I decided to try something a bit different and made a shadow box card.
It was really easy, there is a fabulous totorial for this on the Papermill blog here


Side view to show the dimension. I love how the card folds flat to fit into a normal sized envelope.


Items Used:
Crafts Too Embossing folder - Seed Heads
Joy Crafts Vintage Butterfly
Spellbinders Labels 28
Sentiment - LOTV Handwritten Phrases

If you take a look on this Joanna Sheen Challenge blog you will see the wonderful creations made by this week's Design Team and see who were the winners of the last challenge.



I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my blog again today. It really means so much to me and I love to read any comments you may wish to make.
Bye for now
hugs

This is too funny. I had this exact stamp in my hand this week. It was in the clearance bin at one of the local craft stores and I put it back. I was so drawn to that flower, but my stamp collection is already ridiculous. LOL You picked a wonderful way to spotlight the image Sue. Beautiful!

Karen said...

This is simply stunning, Sue! The stamp is adorable and I love everything about your shadowbox card design. :o) The embossing is gorgeous and the butterfly is exquisite. Everything you create is brilliant and inspiring, my friend. I hope you have a wonderful start to the week. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
