MCT August Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ~ Smile!



Happy Wednesday!  Today is day 3 of  My Creative Time's August Release, and we are more than half way through the sneaky peeks!  I've been really enjoying this week and seeing what everyone on the team has made.

For my project today, I wanted to do another "one layer" style card.  I realize that the "smile" is a layer, however it's not popped up, so I consider this a "one layer" card :)


To create the embossed effect, use a rubber mat with your die.  My Big Shot came with a black rubber mat, and for so long I didn't even know what to do with it :)


recipe:

I've never used that rubber mat with my cutting machine to emboss, but you've inspired me to get it out and give it a try. The effect is amazing. Very cute card!

Great card. I love the way you embossed the Polaroid picture shape for the background. One more use for this versatile die! I have been looking for a camera die for some time. Thanks for the chance to win.

I would consider it a one layer too. To emboss randomly the photo die is awesome and looks fabulous with the smile and camera.
