A Baby Card - Basic Dry Embossing

Supplies: Brass Stencil by Lasting Impressions #L9001, Stylis, Light Box, bit of ribbon, white and Pink cardstock
I totally enjoyed making this card, so fast, easy to clean up, and limited supplies needed!! This is for a montly challenge my friend Joanne (aka SleepyinSeattle) and I are doing with each other to get us using supplies and stamps that we hardly use now that we own them!! This month we're doing dry embossing. I learned this technique early on in my stamping career. (Nah, it's not really a career, just sounded good.) Since then, I've collected maybe 40 or 50 brass stencils of every kind...and I bet I've only made a dozen or so cards with them. See why this is a great challenge for us!! I'm am really going to try to use this technique more often, really.

I love this embossing template - how cute!! Great idea to use old unused stuff - look how wonderful this is! Glad your DS is over surgery and doing well!! I missed you!
