*AddictedtoCAS #188*

 I am SO very excited to share with you that I've been chosen to join the design team at Addicted to CAS!  Yup, another clean and simple card challenge blog!  You will see posts from me every two weeks about these new challenges and I hope to see you playing along!

The challenge has been on a break since the summer so this is the first post in a while...  but the design team is ready to play!

For our first challenge of 2021, we want to see how you interpret the word EMBOSS.... heat embossing?  Dry embossing?  Something else?  You have two weeks to create your card and post it to the Addicted to CAS blog... you can post from Instagram, Flickr or your own blog (and probably other ways I'm not familiar with!)

I decided to go with another winter birthday card...  this could easily be mass produced as a Christmas card by just changing up the sentiment.
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Neenah Classic Crest Cover Solar White 110lb; Stampin' Up! Balmy Blue
*Images:  My Favorite Things Giraffes on Ice
*Etc:  Stampin' Up! embossing folder
*Tools:  Gemini Jr; Perfect Layers
