Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge July 2018 - Embossing

Welcome to the July 2018 Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge!  So sorry for our tardiness, but it's summer and we are on vacations!  This month the challenge is to use embossing on your project!  Any and all types of embossing are welcome.  Just use one or more embossing techniques and let us know what you did.  Details are on the Three Amigos Blog here!

I have a nephew that is graduating high school this year and I created a card for him.  I used a wood plank embossing folder from Close To My Heart on the black layer.

Then I added some die cut starts using some dies from my stash and LOVE this Congrats word die from My Favorite Things... such a fantastic font!  I cut it once from glitter paper and twice from cardstock and layered it.  I just love the look the extra layers give!

Can't wait to see what you create and what new techniques we pick up from you!  Head on over to Donna and Susan's places and then to the Three Amigos blog for all of the details and to find out who won from the June challenge.  We sure hope you play along with us!

Thanks for stopping and see you again soon!
