Embossed Hello Cards...

Hi there.  Today I'm sharing some embossed cards I made using the April Gossamer Blue kits.  I started with the 6 x 6 paper pad and stamp from the Bits & Pieces Kit. 
I trimmed down these small pieces to use on the card fronts. 
Next I reached for my embossing powders.  It's always fun to dig through your stash of supplies that you haven't used for a while. 
I embossed "hello" on all the small pieces then layered them with green ledger paper and small, lined index cards.  Paperclips and little top stitching added the finishing touches. 
Nice generic cards that I can add typed sentiments to if I need them more customized for a birthday, etc.
Lots of patterns and textures to add interest.
The embossing always adds a nice shiny look to the cards.
These just might end up in Josey's pile of thank you cards that I'm creating.  All I need to do is type up some thank you sentiments and then she can hand write a note inside.  Love having cards like this on hand.  Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Those look so great! Is embossing hard to do?

These are wonderful! I love the pops of colors and all the texture throughout. Embossed sentiments always had that extra little something that a card or layout needs!
Hugs,
Jo
