Embossing is Boss Simply Inspired Bog Hop


Welcome to another Simply Inspired Blog Hop!  I love being part of this group of talented Close To My Heart women and that periodically we can all combine our talents to give you a hop that is sure to inspire. This time we've chosen to focus on the brand new Close To My Heart embossing folders. Hold onto your hats. This is a BEAUTIFUL hop!


If you have come here from the classy and creative Debbi Fournier's blog you are on the right path. This blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

Card box closed: inside are 5 matching cards and envelopes
I chose to create a Card Box filled with 5 matching cards and envelopes, all using a bit of dry embossing on them. I focused on 2 of the new embossing folders:  the Dots and the Quatrefoil  folders.  We have 3 other designs to choose from though!  I also used the Ariana papers, matching Complements Dimensional Elements, Ariana Assortment, some Bitty Sparkles and our Trinkets Wooden Shapes. I sponged the edges of a few things using the Cashmere Pad and a Round Sponge and I lightly sanded the dry embossed cardstock pieces with a fine grit sandpaper from our Sanding Kit to give it a bit of a shabby chic look, which I thought went perfectly with the look of the Ariana papers.  At the end of this post, you can find photos and links to these products on my website.
