Speaking of Papertrey Ink, they have a Make it Monday challenge every week over on Nichole's blog and this week's challenge was to use your dies to emboss paper but not in the usual way. You can see in my photo that I used one of the Nestabilities large square dies and embossed a square into my patterned paper to frame my card. There is a video of exactly what to do every week for the challenge on the blog, which is very helpful, and sometimes I even learn a few new tricks. I also stamped my image on cardstock that was die cut and embossed with the scalloped circle Nestabilities.
week's challenge over at Card Patterns. I used the buttons, by Buttons Galore, to represent the three dots in the sketch. I tried to use the cardstock, patterned paper, and the embossed frame to represent the inner line in the sketch with the rounded corners. I hope I did the sketch justice.
