It’s time for the Festive Friday Challenge, where every challenge is a party! For FF0015, we are celebrating International Dot Day (September 15) with an Embossing Folder twist. You can create a card celebrating dots, or you can create a card or project that uses an embossing folder, or you can combine both! Whatever way you decide to create is fine with us! We would love to have you play along!
Embossed Thank You Card
For today’s challenge, I opted to do the embossing folder twist using the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. You might remember this folder from my previous post. It will be available when the Holiday Catalog goes live on September 5th. I thought the coffee pot image, which reminds me of a vintage granite coffee pot, was perfect to use with this folder. I hope you enjoy today’s card.
Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
The embossing folder takes center stage on this card. When couple with the new Galvanized Metallic paper, available September 5th, the results are stunning, and very, very vintage.
The flowers were colored using Stampin’ Blends, and then snipped out. A small pearl adorns the center of the larger blossom.
The coffee pot was also colored using Stampin’ Blends. An adorable little oval bearing the sentiment “Thanks” adorns the front , while a snippet of Very Vanilla lace embellishes the top rim. Also of interest is the Galvanized Clip with Braided Linen Trim bow, both of which are found in the new Holiday Catalog.
A strip of Country Lane Designer Series Paper is accented with a Basic Black die cut created with a thinlit from the Petals & More collection. Of course, I had to add pearls.
The Challenge Twists
As mentioned earlier, Festive Friday is a challenge with twists. If you do not wish to create an International Dot Day project, you could create a card or project featuring an embossing folder. We offer alternatives for every challenge. Plus, if you play along with us, you will be earning Fest Points which can be redeemed for items such as tutorials (including the tutorial for today’s card), retired Stampin’ Up! products, design team cards, and even a spot as a Guest Designer!
