OCC Technique Challenge

This is a first for me! Our Creative Corner's challenge this week was a technique challenge - to use Embossing Resist. I hadn't actually used the technique in a card, so it was really fun for me to come up with something. I even threw in a little masking. ;-) My family has a whole slew of birthdays coming up in the next month, so a birthday card was definitely in order!

Did y'all notice there is no ribbon (gasp!) or Primas? LMBO!!! I was trying to do a masculine card. What do you think....did I succeed?

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla and Basic Black, DCWV textured brown
DP: Anna Griffin
Stamps: Image- Stampin' Up! "Upsy Daisy", Sentiment- SeeD's "Phrases Collection"
Ink: VersaMagic Aegean Blue, VersaFine Onyx Black, Close to My Heart
Sunflower and Sunkiss Yellow
Embellishments: CTMH brads, EK Success photo corner punch


  1. Cindy,
    I think you hit the nail on the head for a manly card. I REALLY need to get one of those photo corner punches, it looks so good when you use it and put brads! Was the white stuff you sent me for embossing? or something else? I am dreadfully ignorant when it comes to all these fancy-schmancy techniques! LOL


  2. Hello! You absolutely DID succeed. This card is just fabulous, for man or woman. Great job!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
