Thank You!!!!!

Today's card comes with a BIG thank you to my brother & his wife who gave me a gift certificate for my birthday.  Today's card - made for them - showcases elements from the products I purchased. 

The embossing is done with a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder.  I LOVE the 5" x 7" size and it worked great in my Big Shot.  The folders themselves are a bit thicker, so I couldn't  AND I just put the whole card in it so the lightweight cardstock was double thickness. I found that I couldn't use both cutting plates in my embossing sandwich.  I created my sandwich by placing the folded card in the folder (this made a double-thickness of the lightweight card), placing the folder directly on the multipurpose platform (closed) and placing a cutting plate on top.  It worked great!

Another great feature of these folders is that you get 2 for the price of one.  This same folder does a different emboss design!  Watch for my next post which will showcase the other emboss design.

As you can see, I inked the embossed design.  I used a makeup sponge dabbed into an ink pad and then rubbed lightly over the card. 

The card focal is another Spellbinders Product - a nesting die set called Splended Circles.   They really ARE splended, aren't they! :-)
