Chicken Wire birthday.

My sister Barb got me all excited about a new embossing folder so of course I had to run out and buy it. So we decided to have a little sister challenge using the new embossing folder.

This embossing folder comes in two parts, embossing folder and border. I love that the embossed sections are not so deep that they split the paper.


I decided on a masculine card with layers, adding texture to the background and one panel. I heat embosses the sentiment them finished with some circle embellishments and pearls.
Pop over to Barb's blog to take a look at the fantastic card she created.

Supplies:  Natural white and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, The Stamps of Life-birthday2celebrate, embossing folder, misc pearl and punches.



  1. Hi Sis,

    Thanks for initiating this challenge!

    I love the "masculine-ness" of your card through both the colors and layout of it. It is very cool how we always come up with different things!

    I wonder what we will inspire each other too next? Its funner than one *wink*

    BIG Sis
