Momo's Tuesday Challenge

Hey Y'all

So today is Momo's Tuesday Challenge and I swear she always challenges me! I love it but it really makes me rack my brain! LOL

This challenge was about embossing, whether it be heat embossing or dry embossing....since for Creative Scraps Challenge (which is still going on, head over to Molly's blog to join in) I used heat embossing, I decided to dry emboss.  I love all of the folders and yet barely use them! So I think this was just the type of challenge I needed!! 

I totally tried something new....I wanted to utilize more of my scraps so I cut 1" strips of white paper and layed them down on a piece of 5"x4" piece of scrap paper.  I used just a very little bit of mono adhesive to hold it down.  I than ran my snowflake folder through my epic 6(a machine that's somewhat like a cuttlebug).  I removed each strip of paper and inked them in different "Christmas" colors.  I apologize, I mean we just got over Halloween and I'm all about Christmas! LOL Anyways, I then reapplied my strips down.  I just had to use my Hello Kitty Cartridge again...I just have so much fun with it (image cut at 4", and I Swiss Dots embossed her jacket for a little more dimension)!!  Now I finished this card last week and it was missing something so I added some red glitter glue to her bow! And it was the perfect touch!  The sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's Stamp Set " Winter Wishes".

Be sure to head over to Momo's Blog and join in on her Challenge!
