Make It Monday - Stampin' Up Bootiful Occasions Halloween Card and Tutorial
Good Morning Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I did as I spent it with friends at the Latin Festival held downtown. There was arts and crafts, dancing and lots of good food. Fun was had by all! My Make It Monday share is a Halloween card inspired by Kim Innis. Of course, I changed it a bit to make it my own. I used the Stampin' Up Bootiful Occasions stamp set and the Stampin' Up Chevron embossing folder. The technique I incorporated on the background is called Embedded Embossing and it is so easy to do. Just follow the tutorial I have listed below.
