Happy Little Thoughts




Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot! This week the challenge is "Embossing" This can be dry embossing, heat embossing or even just Glossy Accents.

I created this card using Miss Kates Cuttables Birds In Nest file and cut it out using my Cameo. I stamped the faces with Peachy Keen faces and added some white highlights to the nest. 
To create the tree, I started by embossing a piece of paper using Tim Holtz's Woodgrain embossing folder. After it was embossed I hand cut around the knot in the tree to for the side and cut out a piece for the branch. I also added some punched flower leaves that I cut apart and glued around the branch. To finish, I stamped the sentiment from My Craft Spot's Butterfly Kisses stamp set.
I hope you will all play along and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created! Have a wonderful day!
