Camp Create Day 5 Bonus: Dry Embossing

Happy Father's Day!
We just returned from having lunch at Cody's for Father's Day not to long ago and everyone is now full and content. Hubby is watching US Open and Kels is resting her knee. Her surgery went well and she is recovering nicely. Her follow-up appointment is next week, so we continue to ice and do simple leg lifts until then. I am in my craft room getting ready to create something new. Trying to decide if I should l pull out my watercolors or Colorbursts. Hmmm?  I may even check out the challenges at Paper Playful to see what has been posted the past couple of days.

The other day I participated in Camp Create Day 5 ~ Divine Dry Embossing, but I have had trouble getting a good picture. I tried late at night, then in the middle of yesterday, and finally this morning. Unfortuantely, this is it. I am not sure if the embossing is deep enough, but the first couple of times I added a paper shim and it cut the paper. Then I tried without (maybe I need to try a new embossing pad since that was the only piece I did not trade out). I used the MFT stitched oval scallop edge frame and the eiffel tower dies. 

The Jaded Blossom stamped sentiment was cut with a MFT fishtail flag and those are slate colored skittle by Doubleclick in the upper left corner. The cardstock is MFT Steel Grey and the polka dot vellum was a find in the Walmart clearance section.

Here is the Day 5 Bonus Badge.

I may try again to see if I can get the impression to my satisfaction, but I am glad I at least made an attempt. I hope MFT does some additional Camp Days later this summer like they hinted. Learning something new is always fun.

Stay Creative,


  1. Beautiful card. Love the embossing. Happy to hear your daughter is doing well after her surgery.

  2. Great card, glad surgery went well. If you spritz your card lightly then emboss with a paper shim it should do it without tearing it. I have to do that a lot especially if paper is more like card. What machine do you use for this?

  3. It's subtle... but I can see it... looks pretty... maybe try taking a photo of it turned a little to the side... that might make it show up more... Who knows... sometimes, taking a picture of our project is more work than the project! LOL Glad Kels is doing well with her knee.... :)
