Thankful For Our Military

Though this is a great weekend to shop for sales and go to BBQ's, I hope you will take a moment of your busy schedule to remember the reason for our celebration, our military and those who made the ultimate sacrifice. I will be sending this card to Operation Write Home to an unknown service member. To learn more about Operation Write Home, click here.

This card features a technique called Embedded Embossing. Simply take your punched or die cut images, in this case stars, and adhere to the Very Vanilla cardstock. Run it through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder. The stars will then be embedded into the Vanilla cardstock and it will appear as though it is one piece. Try this fun tecchnique with other shapes, like leaves or flowers.
