Embossed Alpha Die Cuts MIM # 112 and CASology

The new Make It Monday is all about embossing your alphabet dies or your numbers...go HERE to check out the video on Nichole's blog to watch Ashley demonstrate some tricks for embossing.  I took the Wonderful Words:  Birthday die and cut two, glued them together to give me some dimension, then I put the whole word into the versamark ink and afterwards applies the Zing Aqua embossing powder.

The other challenge I am entering this card into is the CASology: Week 40: WORD....I think this is perfect...a die cut "birthday" word!  thanks for taking a look!

paper:  white stampers select
