You’re My Anchor

Today I participated in the Tic Tac Toe challenge. I chose the top row to inspire today’s card: masculine, embossing, and wood.

For this card, I finally got to use my new Pinewood Planks 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used a brayer to ink up my embossing folder on one side with Early Espresso ink. I then ran it through my Big Shot on Crumb Cake paper to see the two tones of the wood grain. I heat embossed the anchor using white embossing powder.

Happy Birthday: Tools

My husband reminded me that his uncle’s birthday is coming up so today I decided to work in his card. Since retiring, his uncle has started taking up woodworking and we actually got to see a piece he made at Christmas. I figured the Nailed It stamp set would be perfect for his card. I also used the Big on Birthdays Set that I highlighted in a previous post.
