Just Us Girls Technique Challenge

I have to share that I love being part of the Just Us Girls design team.  The team is wonderful.  Low pressure and very fun.  I love that the ideas of the group encourage me to try new things with the tools I already have.  And that is what this week is about.  Trying a new technique.  And the rock star of CAS cards, Andrea, has a super fun technique for us to try this week:  Faux Embossing.  Click here for a quick tutorial.  For my card I used the shamrock dies from Verve and complimented them by stamping them and adding a tag to the ribbon.  I'd love to see what you create with this technique.


Please stop by and check out the gorgeous creations from the other design team members!
