Just for fun, I'm going to take you on my journey to get this ONE card made for this challenge.
First, I had to come up with a template to dry emboss. I had to make up a template that had straight lines because I don't have anything curvy with me (like punches). So, I thought I'd make a checkerboard pattern. So, I used my paper cutter and some Math and cut out very carefully the pattern shown.
Next, I had to actually emboss it. Hmm, no wax paper to make it slide better... oh wait, NO embossing stylus. Huh. Now, what? Oh, wait a moment... my son's Pixter (that we brought for the airplane and long car rides, etc.) has a stylus! WOHOO! Oh boy! Oh boy! It ALSO serves as a light source! PEACHY KEEN BILLIE JEAN! Seriously, you have no idea how excited I became at this idea. I feel like I'm roughin' it here without my embossing stuff! THE HORROR...
The dry embossing isn't the greatest with this method but it certainly works in a pinch. The embossing isn't as clean as I would like so I just put my main focal point over the part that doesn't look great. Anyway, I thought it was clever and I still got to participate in this week's challenge.
Only one card for this week's challenge though. You can see why.
And finally the card... it has the A Muse sentiment and the Superbella. I think it turned out pretty well even though I didn't much like my dry embossing or coloring job. Pretty good for being on vacation and making it in a hotel room, right?
