Make an Impression with Embossing!

Now that CTMH has a line of five fun embossing folders, I’ve enjoyed playing around with various embossing techniques and designing these 6 embossed cards:

What do you think?

These cards feature the five new embossing folders from Close To My Heart’s Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book.

We’ll make two each of these embossed cards, so you can give one away and keep one to remember how it’s made.  Come join us and play with embossing techniques for yourself!

The Workshop is on Thursday morning, April 10th, for some tea and coffee, cake and cookies and laughter while we enjoy creating these amazing cards. For those that can’t make it on a weekday, you are welcome to join us during the Sunday, April 6th, or 13th scrapbooking workshops and complete your cards then, or take a kit home to do yourself.

Workshop is limited to 10 participants. RSVP by April 5th so that I may have your materials prepared for you.

When: Thursday, April 10th at 9am, or

Sunday, April 6th, at 2pm

Where: 1832 Birch Rd, McLean VA 22101
Cost: $25 for 12 cards with envelopes, plus a bonus Mother’s Day Card

RSVP: 571-276-5405

You can purchase this kit to work on at home.  Everything will be pre-cut, necessary pieces will be stamped, and all accessories included.  I will provide you with a photocopy of the cards so that you can create them at home.  The prices are as follows:

  • $25.00 – you need to pick them up
  • $28.00 – mailed to you first class
