Sweet Birthday Wishes - Embossing at International Art & Soul

Our theme this fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge is Embossing. One of my favorite themes! I decided to focus on dry embossing, to showcase some of the lovely Core'Dinations Whitewash paper collection. A nail file was all I needed to bring out the color.


The "candles" are popped up with foam tape, so all the elements end up being a bit popped up. I used circle dies to create the shaker from foam, scrap plastic, and patterned paper. I used a cupcake embossing folder to create the indentation on the top piece of acetate. The back of it is also clear, but I added another cupcake that I "stamped" with the same folder & green ink & colored with Copics.
