Family Challenge 12 - debossing!

It was time to toss out another family challenge with Nina and Judy and I thought the following technique might be fun:

Its called debossing and basically it means the opposite of EMbossing… so the idea is to create a card which has lines carved INTO the cardstock instead of having it ‘puff out’.  You will see watching the video.

Being as I don’t have dies, I used two alternates.  I used an embossing folder from the back side and I also used a small tool and carved around the heart on my card.


I used a shimmery piece of gold paper, embossed  it with a Cuttlebug “foulard’ pattern by Anna Griffin. Then I stamped and embossed the heart.


I embossed it with a gold, then used my tool to carve into the edges and then traced other areas with Wink of Stella in gold before adding some small gems, ribbons.  Voila!



Cheery Cherry

The cherries are READY! 

Sorry, I know that's painful to some of you haha!


  1. love your card did great with the challenge ...thanks so much. Can't wait to see the next challenge :)

  2. First off TEASE... you know it is me that drools over the cherries. So not fair.... Love your stunning card, all the shiny shimmery fabulous gold. Brave girl with the hand drawn debossing too, and it turned out great. Thank you for putting us to the challenge.

  3. Really enjoy your blog. Your cards are lovely. The painful thing to me about our cherry trees is the hoards of blackbirds that seem to know exactly when to swoop in and still our nearly ripe berries. LOL It's a yearly battle!


Your comments are a blessing to me!
