I’ve made my goal — 365 cards for OWH for 2013 (this does not include any hero cards). I am so excited that I made my goal – with plenty of time to spare. I will be sending off 100 cards to OWH tomorrow – for the December 31, 2013 deadline for Valentine’s/Love cards.
I love how dry embossing can add a finished look to a card or when a card just needs a little something extra you can either dry emboss part of it, an element in it or the whole thing. Here are some cards I’ve made using dry embossing.
This card I embossed (Cuttlebug D’vine Swirls) and then used a brayer to apply the blue ink. This card was based on OWH Sketch #95
This card is sketch #93 and the embossing (Cuttlebug Stars) is on the strip behind the two patterned pieces.
This card is sketch #91 and I embossed the card (Cuttlebug Stars) after it was put together. The sentiment is computer generated.
This card I cut out the three hearts using Spellbinders, then stamped a little heart from Stamps of Life upside down for the stem and then hand drew lines for the strings. Then from the Cuttlebug Simply Charmed set of 4 embossing folders I used the check background to emboss the panel; the strip of paper was fed through a die from the Spellbinders Postage card creator. I did not use any sentiment on purpose so this could be used for any occasion or even as a child’s card.
And this last card I embossed the card panel with Darice Dot Point embossing folder. The pinwheel is from Stamps of Life.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

Another fabulous group of cards, you’re such an inspiration! Really love the swirl and brayer card, lots of fun added techniques. TFS!
Great cards! OWH is going to love your box of awesome cards I am sure 🙂
All great cards. Love those balloons and the way you made them. Great job with that. congrats on making your goal. I’m ashamed to say I did not come close to my goal this year. I just could not get into card making this past summer which really hurt mygoal count. Enjoy your day.
