   The Crafty Cardmakers challenge for the next fortnight has the theme of embossing.
   I embossed blue core-dinations cardstock using the Tattered Lace plaid embossing folder, sanded it and then inked it using Distress Inks. I then matted and layered it onto a darker blue card and white card. The image from The Paper Shelter called cute bike was coloured using Promarkers and cut out using a die from Tattered Lace's decorative insert stepper set. This I then matted onto red card. The sentiment was cut from red card using dies from Tattered Lace's all occassions sentiments set.
