#255 -Dry Embossing: machine or hand

Haven here with this weeks challenge.  If you're an avid paper crafter like me you probably have a bunch of embossing folders that you just had to have and now barely use.  Well now's the time to pull them out and create something.  If you don't have an embossing machine try hand embossing with a stencil and stylus.

I inked my embossing folder before using it to make the wood grain background


Here's my card for this challenge. Most of these papers were scraps that I found on my worktable. It felt great to use them up!

I don't have a machine or folders or anything ~
so I found an old ATC paper pad that had this doublesided darker
and lighter green pre-embossed paper. I used it in my middle layers, and sanded
 it lightly to show the pattern a bit better.
Also the beige paper under the pic is an embossed wood grain.

I used the Pretty Paisleys embossing folder from Stampin' Up! 

I used a Happy Birthday embossing folder for my card

I finally got around to using a Tim Holtz embossing folder that I have had for awhile now! I love this one with my Stampin' Up Perfect Blend stamp set.

What inspiration! I'm going to give this a whirl. Can't wait to play! Thanks so much for choosing this challenge, Haven! I haven't used an embossing folder in well over a year!
