JUGS127-Faux Embossing!

Have you missed me?  Wow - I'm quite behind in blogging and blog visits!  But, I've managed to make a few cards the past few days - now to get them posted before the challenge dates are up!!!

I'm getting in under the wire for the Just Us GirlS challenge # 127 - which is Faux Embossing.  I hadn't heard of this technique and it was pretty easy - so I knew I'd be able to participate.

I was in need of a baby card, so I decided to use my Sizzix star die.  I die cut 7 stars and laid out 6 of them on the same color cardstock (this creates the faux embossing).  I used two different PTI sentiments to create my sentiment and placed it over my ribbon.   I kept the card pretty simple because I wanted the faux embossing to show!

I'm pretty late for this challenge, but here's the info on it anyways:

I've got to write up a few more posts and then I'll be around to make my overdue blogging visits!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Oh course we missed you! I hope you had a fabulous time.

I love your card. Your faux embossing looks great. I love the clean design, texture, and use of white space. The pretty ruffled ribbon is just icing on the cake.

Very cool technique! So easy and so eye catching. I really need to give this a try. After seeing all the fabulous stars PTI is putting out this month, I am in the mood for all things starry. This is adorable, Maria!
