HIMCR #149 - Embossing

 HIMCR #149 - Embossing!

This can be any kind of Embossing! Wet or Dry! You can use powder, a folder, a bone folder and scorpal, or go old school with a stylus and stencil!
Or if you don't have any of these, how about some pre-embossed paper!
The sponsor is Laurie!

The giveaway is Embossing folders



I dusted off some items I've had for 2 years or more but never had a chance to play with before to make this card. The stamp/die set I purchased at the last Great Lakes Mega Meet I was able to attend in 2012 and I haven't used my wet embossing products since before then so I had to look up how to do it.




This card if for a mother figure in my granddaughter’s life, Nancy has been battling breast cancer for many years. The cancer has now attacked her brain and she is facing brain surgery.
