Manly Embossing with the Unstampabelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is Embossing, with the optional twist of make it for a male. You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our awesome prize.

For the background, I embossed a yellow cardstock & inked the embossed folder & ran an orange ink pad over the raised bits (actually leftover pieces from a past DT card). I backed the pieces on gold cardstock, and added a mix of metallic embossing powders to the corners.

The "lake" was made from a paper I inked myself with several blues, embossed with with a bubble embossing folder, and then heat-embossed with a layer of clear powder.

The fish were/cut with a koi die from Memory Box, using holographic plastic sheet & one heat-embossed with a shiny orange powder.

The treeline was cut with a Memory Box die, and the sentiment is from Xcut. I embossed the entire piece with my BigShot after gluing on the sentiment.

This doesn't have to be a card for a  man, but I do plan on giving it to a male friend!
