Happy Birthday, Emma!!

Today is my granddaugther's 8th birthday.  She's pretty excited about her new pink, light-up twinkle toes!


Emma has always loved giraffes and points it out anytime she sees one.  So I pulled out the retired Wild About You stamp set to make her card.

This is a closer view of the inlaid embossing technique.  I simply punched circles from card stock and adhered them to the white card stock and ran it though the big shot with the square lattice embossing folder.  It looks like a textured piece of designer card stock.  Here's another example of that technique on a Christmas card I made.
