ATCAS #4 Embossing

Well I hope you all enjoyed the holiday break and are ready for a new Addicted to CAS challenge.  For this next two weeks Karen is our hostess and she chose Embossing.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Uniko Studio!

Please let me introduce you to 


Uniko Studio is a small company based in the North East of the UK. Uniko Studio specialises in surface pattern design & clear stamps for the hobby market. Uniko Studio will feature high quality photopolymer stamps designed & manufactured here in the UK, and if things go well we will branch out into other crafting supplies.

Beverley has been kind enough to offer a fabulous prize - digis from her store!  Please check the Addicted to CAS blog for all of the details on how to win some digis!

 Now on to my card:



I made a set of these holiday cards to raffle off for my temple's fundraiser.  I thought they were good for any of the winter holidays (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa...).  I used Nestabilities to cut out the square and then embossed it with the Cuttlebug dove and olive branch embossing folder.   I matted it with shiny gold card stock.  I used an EK Success border punch on the bottom of the front side of the card and used my Scor-pal to score some lines.  I cut a thin strip of the gold cardstock to adhere to the inside of the card front.

I hope this card has inspired you to play along with us at ATCAS! For even more inspiration go to the ATCAS blog to see what the other DT members created!  Then link your design up directly to InLinkz on the ATCAS blog for a chance to win the prize from Uniko Studio!

Thanks for coming by!
