Monday Card Challenge - Embossing by Cari Locken

I absolutely love the look of embossing. Whether it's been done dry (by embossing on cardstock with Cuttlebug templates) or by stamping and using embossing powders. I just love the end result.

I've done quite a bit of dry embossing and here a few examples.
Both of these I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on Core'dinations cardstock (which I just love for embossing. It has a different core color so when you sand the embossed image it reveals the image just wonderfully!!)
Supplies used: Core'dinations cardstock, SRM sticker, Prima flower & lace, Queen & Co rhinestones, EK Success punch, twine, Cuttlebug embossing folder

Supplies used: Core'dinations Cardstock, Imaginisce paper, rhinestones used with i-rock tool & chipboard, May Arts ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing folder, EK Success punch

This last one is a card where I stamped the dove image and then sprinkled red glitter embossing powder overtop.

Supplies used: Gelatins stamps & embossing powders, Bazzill Cardstock, American Crafts paper

Thanks for looking and hope you have fun trying some embossing with your cards.


  1. Hi Jo,

    Thanks for the comment. I know what you mean. As a teacher there is no way I can wear high heels in the classroom. But I keep looking at my daughters who are very able of going out and dancing with them all night and manoeuvring walking on ice...Love your cards....just beautiful!
