e-Play Embossing Challenge "Shark Bait's " Catch

Hi my friends over at Eclectic Paperie  http://eclecticpaperie.blogspot.ca/2014/08/august-eplay-challenge-embossing.html were doing an embossing challenge for the month of August... how could I not participate?
 " Shark Bait's " Catch

I saw this post and thought ( early on I would do it... I enjoy the challenges... then I decided not) I would participate with some great project... well I was so far behind in my other challenges I thought it won't happen... then a light bulb went on... dah embossing !

I made this cute little card in a hurry ... was to go to a birthday party for a cute 4 year old and I forgot to make his card ... OH NO ! I had bought the supplies and everything... bummer !!
Okay so two hours before I was to leave I had to figure out something quick to do ( my original plan was going to take too long to do). I remembered how easy Tim Holtz  Bubble Embossing Folder was ...Yay ! New plan ...

Thank goodness my circuit stays on the ready ! My great nephew's nick name is "Shark Bait " ! Humm... no sharks but I do have some  whimsical  sea creatures ... bright red, blue colors, orange, green ) ( Sticko ) .  He just turned four so cool... bright red numbers, blue tags ; which I stamped with the  Tim Holtz bubble layering stencil looking good ... umm need some bright color eyelets to repeat the bright colors of the fish, starfish and whale ... yay for my stash of bright eyelets ... I added eyelets to the tags, used my Tim Holtz  simple sayings stamps to stamp sayings in Blue of course ! That took care of the inside ... now the front ...

It's amazing how I worked backwards ( inside first then out side) ... LOL !  I created a larger blue tag and a larger 4; cut out a blue seahorse from Tim's Sand and Sea die, used plastic and embossed it with the bubble embossing folder ... little bubble stenciling added stickers... covered them with the bubbles ... viola... a 4 year old Birthday Card ... quickest card I've ever made !

The card was a hit ... everybody couldn't believe I made it. And my nephew loved it ... he walked around waving it as if it were a fish riding the waves... what joy to see the expression on his face !


  1. Wow, I am totally impressed. I wish I had the room to leave my digi die cutting machine set up. Your card is adorable and I love the bubble embossing. Thanks so much for playing along in our ePlay August challenge. xoxo

  2. It does not look like a quick card at all! You have done a wonderful job with the bubble embossing folder and I love the little tags with numbers inside. I bet there was one very happy little boy. Thanks for your visit and kind words, much appreciated! Anne x

  3. Thank you Redanne ! And yes he was very happy :)
