My First Post - Wow!

Well I think I have been pussyfooting around long enough so here goes.



I've just started doing an online course with My Creative Classroom about embossing and this is my offering for Week 1.

Apart from the stress of producing a card that is going on public display to your class mates around the world there were additional complications. My camera software worked perfectly well on the old computer but of course nothing is compatible with Windows 7.  Thank goodness I've got a scanner printer - although I did think I had cropped the photo better than that.  There is sooo much to learn.

Enough wittering on.  the embossing folder is a Marianne design Creatable, the stamp from Waltzing Mouse, the die from Spellbinders and the cardstock was Core'dinations (Ranger/Tim Holtz Adirondack Collection) and DCWV's Mariposa Matstack.

Lesson two looks exciting but I have also just taken delivery of some Cuttlebug All-in-one embossing folders so I'm going to have a lot to play with.

  1. This is a beautiful card using some of my favourite colours. It looks a little like Battenburg lace. I also like sanding paper to reveal the colour in the core. Very effective with embossed cardstock. Good luck with blogging!
