Everyday Cards Project No. 005: You're Awesome, Incredible, Wonderful

Close To My Heart is partnered with Operation Smile®, an organization that provides free, life-changing surgery that repairs smiles and reshapes lives, one child at a time. From our Seasonal Expressions I catalog the stamp set "You're The Bomb" will only be available until March 31st.

This stamp set has been a favorite with my daughters, both have asked me several times to make cards for their friends using this stamp set. On today's everyday cards project, I created this fun card again incorporating two types of embossing techniques, dry embossing (embossing folders) and wet embossing (ink and powder). Try them both and see which one you like best.
