I have been sitting and looking at my pretty papertrey ink felt for a few months now, and just finally made a card with it!  I made my mom a bunch of cards and a cute case for Christmas, but the envelopes I sent her to use with them kind of sucked (I lost the ones I was going to use).  Now, I can't just send my Mom a bunch of envelopes without a card!  So, this is what I came up with...
The sentiment is a little off, but I didn't noticed until I glued everything else down...grr

PTI Make it Monday #6- Impression Plate Tricks #1

I haven't posted in sooo long!! Goodness!  I have still been making cards and what not, I have just gotten really lazy about updating this blog (I tend to do this with journal type stuff) and my sciatica is bothering me.  But, I made a really cute gift set for my brother-in-law.  Manly cards are always kind of hard so I took a more vintage approach.

The challenge for PTI was to emboss half of your project (see website for more details).  I was able to manage this on the notebook and the bookmark.  They are both hard to see because I used kraft paper...

You can see I used the wood grain impression plate on half of this
I used the small type on the book/letters impression plate
 I really love how this set turned out!  I just need to get a bit better at the picture taking...Hopefully if you enlarge the images you can see the embossing better.
