Dry & Wet Embossing with The Greeting Farm

Hi all, just a quick card to show you today. I had to make something fairly quickly for an anniversary card. With two kiddos under three I feel like I am forced to do many things quickly. :)

Using an embossing folder from my stash (sorry, forgot the brand), I quickly dry embossed some basic black cardstock. Next, I inked up three fun stamps from The Greeting Farm's Creeper Crew Volume 1 Collection. I used Sasha and Tyler. I love Tyler and I thought he was totally perfect for this Anniversary Card as the hubby in question is quite the guitarist! Sasha is always in style so she was great to use for the Better Half. :)

I wet embossed the stamps using Zing Metallic Gold Embossing Powder and Top Boss Tinted Embossing Stamp Pad.

The inside was created quickly using two CTMH stamp sets  (Butterfly from CTMH "It's Your Day" Set and Celebration No. from CTMH D1421 "Cherish the Moment").

Well, that's it for now. Next week I hope to show you some of the crafty projects I've been working on for my (+ kiddos) craft room. Stay Tuned!
