Embossing with Kaboodle Doodle

This week on the Kaboodle Doodle Challenge Blog, the theme is Embossing. It can be any type of embossing that you like. For my card I have used dry embossing with my cuttlebug, glitzed up with some glitter and using the tree from Andrea’s Merry and Bright Christmas kit.

You can see with the tinsel that we have our Christmas decorations out, we might even get around to putting them up today 🙂 Have fun with the challenge.

Very Shapely Kaboodle Doodle Challenge 13

It is cool not to be square (or rectangular) this week at Kaboodle Doodle. Shapely cards are the way to go and this card is for a little girl’s birthday, the daughter of a friend, and is somewhat lion shaped 🙂

I’ve used the Animal papers from Kaboodle Doodle, printed to approx 4 inches tall and 5 inches wide and printing the head out three times. I then trimmed a straight edge along the side of the left leg through the head and stuck this against the folded edge of the card. I cut around the body and then layered up the head to give some dimension. The sentiment is a little flag attached to the tail.

He is so cute, I just want to keep him 🙂

Paper – Kaboodle Doodle Animal Kit
Usual Suspects – silicone glue; glue dots; Trimmer; Scissors; Card
