Here's my card, then I'll explain:
|Yes, I DID look for a comma on my Dymo labeler, but it eluded me.|
I think the last time we did this challenge I also used a Fiskars texture plate. Those things are ancient, and during my recent "put it away where you have a ghost's chance of finding it again" policy with my craft room, I even have the funky tool that came with the plates. This was way before embossing folders.
I have a print-out of Cuttlebug instructions for using the plumber's rubber gaskets I use with these plates, but I no longer have a Cuttlebug, so I faked it with my Big Shot. I used (from bottom to top) the Big Shot base, cutting plate, Fiskars texture plate, card stock, and thin rubber gasket. It embossed just fine, so I was happy.
For the rest of my card, I decided to play a few challenges. I combined the current ColourQ challenge:
and the current The Male Room challenge:
I pulled out my Riley guy, since I almost never use him, and my trusty Dymo labeler for the custom sentiment. I've found that the labels come un-stuck after a while, so these are popped up (hopped up) with pieces of foam tape.
The numbers are my splash of color, and they were cut from a piece of red card stock laying next to my trimmer.
Here's a closer look at that texture plate impression:
So, got old, unloved, embossing products in your stash? I think you should play along with us this week over at SOS!
Thanks for stopping by!
