What's your favourite Embossing

A new challenge today over on As You Like It and we would like to see whats your favourite Dry or Wet Embossing on your cards and remember to tell us why when you link up.

We are sponsored by Crafty Sentiment Designs


My card was a last minute make as usual so dry embossing is the way to go for me on such occasions,  quick and  love how embossing folders give texture and with so many pretty designs out there for us to want, need! I also love how we can use our dies to just emboss a piece of card and create a card with it, which I have done in this case. Was supposed to be a quick card that turned out quite the opposite, when will I learn to stamp my sentiment first and not once I have my card finished.

Very simple card using a Memorybox die to emboss the card, then using same die cut it out in black and used one of the butterflies to add dimension.

That's a beautiful embossing folder. Now I'm just the opposite. I have embossing, gun, versa ink and powders at my fingertips and think heat embossing is quick and easy! LOL Thanks for joining us at Craft Your Passion challenge this week!
