It’s another gorgeous sunny day here, so I headed up the garden to create a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog


I discovered the blog challenge this morning whilst looking through Instagram, decided to give it a whirl and here I am 🙂

The theme is “EMBOSS IT”  you can either do heat and or dry embossing… I opted for the dry, and you have to incorporate a sizzix or cuttlebug product too.

For my card I chose to use the Sizzix Ledger embossing folder, which I have to admit, bought, and this is the first time I have used it on a project, I’m also using the new September release stamp set from Clearly Besotted “Boo to You”


Supplies list :-

  • Sizzix Ledger Embossing Folder
  • Heavyweight White Card stock
  • Clearly Besotted Boo to You Stamp & Die Set
  • Clearly Besotted You Said it Die Set
  • Hero Arts – Hero Hues Black Dye Ink
  • Hero Arts Mid Tone Shaddow Ink – Green Hills
  • We r Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
  • Masking Tape
