Make My Monday #44

Good Morning everyone, I hope you are enjoying the Easter Weekend.

So today is a new challenge over at Make My Monday, the theme is embossing, for more details and to look at all the design teams makes follow this link


The first thing that came to my mind seeing it was embossing was all those 'core'dination' pads i had in the cupboard, so i dug out my favourite of them, the 'chocolate box' these are all shades of chocolate with a coloured core once embossed and sanded back. 

So i dug out a mix of embossed folders with smaller patterns and had fun



A5 ivory cardblank.   I first cut several octogens from the chocolate core'dinations, embossed them and sanded back to reveal the coloured core, i then cut a bigger octogen from the reverse of the core'dination to create mats from the same colour as the embossing.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and layered onto a small embossed panel.

  1. Crafty colouring...
    Embossing today.
    Our Em sure is boss,
    That's clear to say!

    Ideas she forms
    After scratching her brain,
    Then card she creates
    That's brilliant again!

    Though I scratch my head,
    Turn ideas all round...
    The shape of success
    I've rarely found!

    Thank you, Emma
    For ideas new...
    I hope that Easter
    Was happy for you!
