Good Teachers Are Never Forgotten

Here's another card from Nikki's order for teacher appreciation week. This one is another fav from Sophie cart. Nikki had one request...vibrant spring colors. For this card I chose these complimentary colors that screamed spring has sprung!

Dry embossing has become one of my favorite techniques. Using the Cuttlebug brings such a pop to all projects. My tip is, if you plan to stamp on the part of your project that you will emboss, stamp first and then emboss after. You don't want to squish your design or have parts of the stamped image not show up due to the newly created facets in the paper. Pre-planning is key.
