Today I am featured at Frosted Designs for our Embossing Challenge.
I have a ton of baseball pictures to scrap so I grabbed my sports embossing folder and got to work!!
I love the look of an embossed paper sack. I took some lunch sacks and cut off the bottoms and did some experimenting!!
I ran a sack through my Cuttlebug and liked the embossing through both sides of the sack.
Well, I thought the image would look better crinkled so I crinkled it up - and it tore.
I tried crinkling the sack first and then embossing - success!!!
I grabbed my "dirt brown" ink (aka Vintage Photo) and inked the embossed images.
I used three fonts to create my title "The Boys of Summer" and I used a phrase I purchased from the Silhouette Store. I cut these both out of black vinyl.
I could have used black cardstock, but I felt the vinyl would cling (and stick) to the embossed images better than using adhesive on cardstock.
I used transfer tape to pull up my title...
and to lay it down on my embossed sack.
I used a ruler to help me tear the edges. I inked the torn edges.
I layered my papers to frame my photos and title. I added some natural twine knots to mimic a baseball glove.
You can see the embossing through the wide letters!!
This was a great day!! Tanner's team is made up of 7 and 8 year olds playing in an 8 year old (and under) league. This was our second tournament championship this season!! Love dog pile pics :) Tanner is very proud of his "glass" plaque (it is really acrylic but I was not going to spoil it for him)!
Thanks for stopping by!
