Thank You Card Using Embossing Folders

Hi to all my fellow crafters!  I created some easy Thank you cards a few weeks ago and wanted to share them with you.  I made all of them using the same cardstock and embossing folder.  I bought a new Teresa Collins EBosser machine bundle and had to play with it.  It comes with this incredible 8 1/2 by 11 and 12 inch embossing folders; which are fabulous!  I embossed one sheet, created 3 cards and could probably create at least 2 - 3 more with it. 
It is still summer weather here.  I hope many of you are enjoying the fall weather in your area or at least cooling down.  I love the Fall and the Spring and they are my two favorite seasons.  Fall is a  time to slow down; a time to hibernate for the winter by going within or to prepare for the winter.  Spring is about new beginnings and starting new projects - mostly outside.

    Luv Sam x

    1. Hi Sam, The first card does have the focal point as a stamped image. Does the sentiment not count as an image? I just realized it might not count. Let me know. I was thinking that the banner would count as a stamped image. Maybe I am wrong. Thanks. Gloria

  28. Gorgeous set of thank you cards Gloria! So glad you linked up with us for our "thankful" challenge this month at SEM!!

  29. These cards are so pretty, I love the subtle touch the embossing adds - elegance with the texture. The bundle and the choices of sizes sounds wonderful. It is sometimes challenging to create using the one size embossing folders that are all over, like this idea very much. The rich colors really make the cards POP!

    Well, you also definitely gave us beautiful things to enjoy over at Opus Gluei, and we thank you for participating in our challenge. I hope we're able to entice you over to play with us again!

  30. Your project is awesome with so many great details! Thanks for sharing your talent with us in the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog's "Anything Goes" challenge!
