Stamping Vacation: White Space Challenge and PTI MIM: Embossing with Dies

This month's White Space challenge at the Stamping Vacation blog invites to try making a white card with something attached with a brad.

This week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday invites us to emboss using their dies.

I incorporated these 2 challenges together to make a grad card for a former coworker.


It's impossible to see in the photograph but the white panel is embossed with clouds.

Using the school's colors, I stamped the grad hats, used a gold gel pen to fix up the cords a bit and then cut them out, adhering them with dimensional adhesive.

For every entry over at Stamping Vacation, you have the chance to win a gift certificate! If one of my challenges (What a Guy, Have You Tried, White Space and, on Sunday, Lots of Paper) has the most entries this month, I win a gift certificate! You have a month from the challenge post date to enter.

Thanks for stopping by!
