Just Us Girls Challenge #575~Embossing Folder...You Two will make Amazing Parents, A House is not a Home without Paw Prints, Thanks for All You Do Butterfly collage

Hello,

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #575, where lovely Bobby invites us to use embossing folders, which are gaining popularity at light speed, especially the 3D ones, as this week's Trend.


Shawna joins us once again as our March Guest Designer.  Her card is marvelous, as are those by my teammates. If you have time to visit and share comments, that would be wonderfully appreciated.

I don't have many embossing folders and they certainly haven't had a play in ages. Revisiting them was fun, even though I'm rusty and not particularly well-versed in using them 'creatively'. Result: a trio of cards that are essentially 'emboss-and-go'. Simplicity!  I may need to explore the 3D versions more carefully and, especially, check out some of the cool techniques that can be used with them. That's one of the many perks of card-making: always something new to try (and buy *grin*).



I've had this Paw Prints one for a while and I'm not sure quite how it fits for a card. Perhaps it's better suited for a simple frame to display as a piece of home decor. The message is one I whole-heartedly agree with!


And here's my little Lily, who's paw prints make our house a home!!


That's it from me; looking forward to seeing your embossing folder delights in the gallery.

Thank you for dropping by!

The best thing about this challenge (and why I picked it) is that we will see a wide range of ways to use an embossing folder, from fancy techniques to the beautiful simplicity of yours, Carol.
