HIMCR #197 - Any Holiday

HIMCR #197 - Any Holiday!

The sponsor is The Paper Shelter!

 
The giveaway is 2 digital images, winner's choice, from The Paper Shelter!



Mother's Day is on it's way and I have more cards than I can use for the occasion including this cutie.


The image is from The Paper Shelter, you can get it colored or uncolored. I choose the colored one.
 
The embossed background was done using the Cuttlebug, "Thank You" All in One set. This is something that Provo Craft put out a few years ago but I never used it because when I purchased it I was unaware that I also needed the folder, which is yet another product. I finally got the folder and I really liked the way the embossing plate went with the image.
 
 
I used a piece of teal Core'dinations paper for the embossing then I did a light sanding on the raised areas. I have found that using a piece of sandpaper works better than any of the gadgets on the market.
 
I added a piece of yellow ribbon to the bottom of the embossed piece and layered it onto a piece of yellow Core'dinations paper (thank you Renee).
 
The sentiment is a stamp from my stash, I used a teal ink and stamped it onto a piece of vellum which I mounted onto a scrap of the yellow I used for the card.
 
I mounted the image on to an Action Wobble just for fun.
