AAA Cards Challenge #137: Made in Minutes + Dry Embossing, with video

This fortnight our challenge is Made in Minutes and the optional twist is Dry Embossing.
 Our Sponsor is Heffy Doodle .

I've used the Happy Snappy Crocs from Heffy Doodle and a hearts embossing folder from Marianne Design (DF3438) and the Marianne Design  Eline's Brushes (EC0162).

In the video you can see the extend of my embossing folders (3) and you can always turn to embossing dies and or use your scoring board for a few lines; not too many, let's keep is as CAS as possible ;-)
So I placed a card panel(1cm smaller than the base) on the edge of my embossing folder , to just get a few hearts along the
edge, I thought they would go well with the sentiment.

I then Stamped the happy snappy croc with Versafine Clair ink and then the sentiment as well.

For coloring my croc I've also used a stamp and Pear Tart and Bamboo leaves ink from Memento. Personally I cannot do the colour outside the lines thing, so this stampset helps, also with the time issue.

To finish the card I've place three enamel dots around the image.

  1. Oh what a fun image from our sponsor! Love the addition of the green paint strokes behind it. Super idea and certainly looks like it could be reproduced in minutes.

  2. Your croc looks happy and carefree. Such a fun image.

  3. Such a fun card Maaike! And I love how you incorporated some subtle dry embossing!

  4. Adore your embossed edge! =) Tracie
