Mornin' hens! Here's a little card I made for my good friend Jen's son Austin. He just graduated high school. This image is from an older Cornish Heritage Farms set from Kim Hughes called U R A Hoot. Sadly, this company is no longer in business, but Kim does have her own company now called Paper Smooches. I love her work. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE! Ok, so I started with embossing the front of my card. However, I did not want to emboss the area where the image would go. So I made six A2 size frames from card stock with the centers cut out. Then I taped them together and placed them on top of the embossing folder when I ran it through my Cuttlebug. Yoila! The center is not embossed. Yay! Ok, then I made the brown frame using my Nestabilities and popped both it and the image up using SU dimensionals. To finish, I tied on some Baker's Twine and then added a tiny '13 to his mortarboard.
Have a great day!
