An Embossed Hello Card


Today I have a card I'm pretty proud of to share with you!  If you happened to watch Teresa Collins' segments on HSN on Monday, you may have seen this among the samples on her table!!  It was pretty exciting to see my cards on TV- and wasn't Teresa great??  I loved watching!

For this card, I chose a few of my favorite embossing folders from the Teresa Collins Ebosser Collection.  I ran each one through my Ebosser with white cardstock.  I cut them into strips and then adhered them onto my card.  I used a little bit of Xyron Mega Runner Adhesive in the center of each strip to secure them to my card.  I stayed away from the edges so that my sewing would be easy and my needle wouldn't get gunked up with adhesive.  I sewed along the edges of each of the strips with a zig-zag stitch.

After it was all sewn, I embellished it with some fun goodies from the Teresa Collins You Are My Happy collection- I love the colors in this one!  These coral sequins might be my favorite ever! :)

I'm so glad I had time to pop on and share this card with you today!
