Crop-a-dile dry embossing

I'm back from my busy week! I actually had planned to mow the lawn today, but there is a flat tire on the lawnmower. I'm not into fixing that kind of stuff, so I'm leaving that until Nate comes home.

So instead of mowing I guess I'm blogging! Lucky for you I have a few projects I wanted to show you.

I made this card to show the different ways to use a Crop-A-Dile.

First, notice the dry-embossed circles in the upper right corner of the card? Can you believe that was done with the Crop-A-Dile? Set your cubes to: top-A, bottom-1 or 2. You will squeeze slightly, but NOT TOO HARD!! Otherwise you will punch a hole. It will make a little dry embossed circle. Then just add more as you wish. I used a piece of paper that was punched out with the photo corner punch as a guide to make the circles in the corner.

Then, I punched out a hole for the jumbo eyelet in the center of the scalloped flower. I finished that and wanted to add a green rhinestone brad somewhere, and then thought it would look cool in the center of that jumbo eyelet, and it sure does!!

Stamps: In the Spotlight
Paper: Basic Gray, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Basic Grey
Tools: Scalloped Circle punch, Crop-A-Dile
Accessories: Green Rhinestone Brad, Wild Wasabi ribbon, Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon.
