Die Cuttin Divas Guest Designer - Jawsome Birthday Card!

Hey friends! I'm so super excited to be Guest Designing over at the Die Cuttin' Diva's challenge blog this week!! If you are ever looking for inspiration to use your diecuts, or a challenge to link up to, this is the place to go. Our theme this week is 'Embossing' so I thought I'd share a card with some dry embossing - using an embossing folder, as well as some heat embossing, on this Jawsome birthday card using the Sizzix Thinlets Gift Card Bag diecut by Tim Holtz and the Lawn Fawn 'Duh-Nuh' stamp set for a little friend's birthday.

I cut the Gift Card Bag from a piece of packaging from a Tim Holtz Stencil - perfect for recycling, and too cool to throw out! I used a circle embossing folder to emboss the blue cardstock and then added some Distress Inks to highlight the raised images.

Inside, I stamped some more of the cute shark images, coloured them up and then added a couple cute sentiments along with some SpiegelMom Scraps Sequins. Even the envelope got a little coordinating stamp!

After embossing the shark and the bubbles with white on the Gift Card Bag I used the Jane Davenport Paint Over Pens to add an opaque colour. I cut a little tag to add into the bag and tucked the gift card in as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to head over to the Die Cuttin' Diva's challenge blog to see all the other amazing projects the designers have come up with this week, and enter your own embossed project, with a diecut - we'd love to see what you come up with!!
