Perfectly CAS July 2021 Challenge #17~Emboss...Soda Pop Birthday


Welcome to Perfectly CAS July 2021 Challenge #17, where our theme this month is Embossing. This technique has many forms - heat embossing, embossing folders, embossing with dies - and likely a few more that aren't springing to mind right now. 

Confession: I do not like heat embossing...messy, paper warps and, with the heat wave that has yet to abate, even the thought of turning on my heat gun makes me all sweaty...I mean, glisteny! So...I went with a lazy route: embossed lines on my MFT soda pop bottle (hard to see in the photo) and a polka-dot embossing folder circle background. Easy...and stress/heat free! Yayyy! Oh...and I also used a dot cover plate, just for a little extra interest....

Please be sure to pop by my teammates' blogs, leave them some love, then bring your Perfectly CAS Embossing creations to the gallery.
  • A friendly reminder: For this challenge, we're asking you to use one-third (aka: the rule of thirds) or less on your card designs, leaving plenty of scrumptious white space (two-thirds of your panel) to draw our eyes to to your focal image. Kylie has included an easy-to-follow explanation on the challenge blog here.
Hope you're staying safe and healthy!

Thank you for dropping by!

Man, you get all the extremes, don't you? I hope it cools off for you just a bit, soon. Cute card and a great work around the heat embossing. ;) Thanks for sharing!

Love the 3D of the straw coming out of the embossed pop bottle! Even a heat wave can't keep ME away from heat embossing! :D

I love your retro card! It never even occurred to me to do heat embossing. My mind went immediately to an embossing folder. duh!
