CAS-ual Fridays Challenge* CFC #16

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays was to create a "clear and simple" project using an embossing technique. I just recently got the Surf and Turf stamp set from Paper Smooches in the mail and was itching to use it some more! I decided to create a simple thank you card using dry embossing. I started off with a pale yellow card base and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder with a bubble look to it on some light blue pearl paper. I then stamped the whale from Surf and Turf and colored him with Triart markers, first layer was C2 Cool Gray No.2 and second layer was BG-11 Pale Blue. I also stamped the air bubbles from the same set and colored them with B6 Andes Blue. The sentiment "huge thanks" is from the same set and is stamped in Royal Blue ink by Stampabilites and then I cut it out with "bubbly" decorative scissors. I then added a simple piece of white emboidery thread in a knot.
