GIrls Just Want to have Fun

We are well into the busy birthday months for me so today I have a birthday card for a co-worker. I started with a white card stock card base cut and scored to make a 5" x 6 1/2" card base. I added a light aqua mat cut at 4 7/8" X 6 3/8". I used a new Anna Griffin embossing folder called Eleanors Lace and embossed a piece of lavender card stock cut at 4 3/4" X 6 1/4" using my eBosser. Got to love my eBosser. I love not cranking and it just flows through smoothly. I then used a new die I also go as part of my package with the Anna Griffin embossing folders. It was cut out of a dark turquoise card stock from my stash. I adhered my mats together with some Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller Adhesive. Kim doesn't stock them in the store (hint, hint) but she can order them and the refills for you. Okay, so call me crazy, but I really wanted that die cut image popped up!  So Kool Tak 3D Clear Foam on a Roll to the rescue! I love this product and it is one of my favorite products I have bought from Cutters Creek!! The advantage to using the Kool Tak Clear Foam is that it is clear. I also love  the one on the roll so I can cut any size I need. It worked perfect to pop up my die cut. Finally, I cut a small square piece of what card stock and used a border punch on it. Then cut a lavender piece of card stock that embossed my sentiment with Wow! embossing powder. I used Port and Brandy from a limited edition set called Girls Nigh Out! Love this embossing powder. Want me to let you in on a little secret. I could not emboss with embossing powder if my life depended on it!! UNTIL I found the Wow! embossing powder.. So this too, is one of my favorite products I have ever purchased from Cutters Creek.  If you haven't tried you, you should order a few colors and give it a try. You won't regret it! So pop on over to Cutters Creek and get your supplies ordered and start crafting!!
