Squash It Challenge #4

If you've not come across the Let's Squash It challenge before the aim is to encourage the use of embossing folders which must be named ones.  This time we are asked to combine embossing with anything from the animal kingdom and I've chosen a woodgrain embossing folder as the main focus of the card with a stamped image of a chick. This card is more CAS than my usual style but I did want to show a good proportion of the lovely wood grain which was embossed on cream card and sponged with ink to bring out the texture. Why not dig out some of your embossing folders and have a go at this fun challenge??  There is a prize to be won.😉

  1. Such a cute card, Val! Thanks for playing at Let's Squash It! Jo x

  2. Hi Val, in reply to your comment, please just do your best with naming folders. It's not essential just helpful - I'd hate to see you struggle with your creativity or not make a gorgeous card just because you can't track down the name of a folder. Hugs, Jo x

    1. What Jo said LOL. Maybe we can help name some of them. HUgz
