WCMD with UNITY STAMP CO. - #3 Embossing Challenge

Well, I am a day late in celebrating, but
I didn't let that stop me from
creating with 
my favorite
Red Rubbah Stamps

They hosted 8 challenges yesterday
in celebration of
World Card Making Day
at their wonderful
Each challenge was a
great opportunity
to get out my stamps and play.
I feel like I had been neglecting them
for far too long...LOL

So I decided to work on the Embossing Challenge (#3) first.
You might ask, "Why start in the middle?"
  Well, I went for
a small shopping trip to my LSS last night
to get adhesive and found
an adorable Fall Word Art 
Embossing Folder by Darice for $1.00.

My card base is Kraft card stock (5x7 folded)
I decided to spray the embossing folder  
with some of my Olive Green Smooch Spritz.
Then I sprayed a tad bit of water over that for even coverage.
I wound my Natural Color card stock by Wausau Paper, through my Big Shot.
While that was drying
and got inky.
This set is currently on sale at Unity 
for  47% off - 
That's ONLY $9.99.

I inked it up the word art sentiment from the set
with my new Ranger Big and Bossy embossing ink pad
then sprinkled red embossing powder over it.
I grabbed a small paint brush and put a light coat of the embossing ink 
on one of the raised leaves on my embossed card stock.
While that waited for me, I dipped my sentiment mat (wood grain paper)
in the ink and sprinkled gold embossing powder over it.  
I used the same technique on another leaf, just with the gold this time.
After heat embossing all of these areas, I decided to add a bit of orange
embossing powder around the edge of my sentiment.

The fall leaf paper in the background (and wood grain from earlier)
is from  the K&Company set Pumpkin Pie.
I inked the Thank You in Vintage Photo, then inked around all the 
edges of any card stock that was left untouched.
I raised both sentiments on the front up from their mats
using 3D foam squares.

I added some Halloween Harvest Crinkle Ribbon 
from 3 Girl JAM   behind the embossed mat and the word art sentiment.

I then inked the Blessings...sentiment and created a mat 
from the same leaf card stock on the front.
This was for the inside sentiment of the card.
A few green pearls, and the card was complete.

You can get the fun *NEW* Seasons Bundle
for only $6.99
 Then get crafty with your ribbon
and enter the new 

Thank You so Much for stopping in
to see my card and I sure hope you enjoyed it!
Keep Crafting

  4. So glad you had fun with this challenge! I didn't think I'd have time to make any cards on WCMD but I joined in the Unity challenge too and found that the ideas flowed once I got started. What a great score on that embossing folder! Your card is just gorgeous, with all that fun texture!
