Embossing Technique Challenge #8

What a crazy, crazy week!  My college aged daughter is getting ready to head back to Provo, BYU, and my husband is and maybe even by the time you read this, on his way home, hopefully.  So we have been literally coming and going and probably chasing our tails but staying busy! 

Anyway, with all the hustle and bustle here I decided to keep this week's challenge pretty simple: embossing!  This week is the 3rd Saturday of the month so it's technique week.  I chose embossing for this challenge.  It can be dry embossing with a folder/plate or with a stencil and a stylus.  Or wet embossing with those wonderful powders and heat guns.  For my example I used the Dry Embossing technique with two different embossing folders:  Square Lattice & Allegro.

Here's what I came up with:

Boy with Saxaphone was cut at 5" from Quarter Note Cartridge.

My 15 year old son plays the saxophone in marching band, and tonight (I'm writing this late Friday night) was the first game of the year.  He is so awesome!!!  And I am sooooo proud!!!
I made this card for him!
Card Base: SU Garden Green 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   Chocolate Chip 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   DCWV 'Twinkle Little Boys', Gold paper from Target, black
Ink:  Garden Green
Stamps:   PTI Way To Go, Kiddo
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & SU Square Lattice and Allergro embossing folder, Cricut & Quarter Note Cartridge, ribbon from my stash bin, distresser
