daddy's little girl (Moxie Fab, CASOS, SSS, KIS)

Gold embossing and one specific stamp.  Having those two things in mind I whipped up this card. Well, it was "whipped up" after I spent 20 minutes deciding which PPs to use...  That's what ya get for having too much of the stuff.

Very simple, very sweet with all the emphasis on that sentiment.  Which is heat embossed in gold. As the card was laying on the dining room table waiting to be photographed, it dawned on me that it would make a great cover for a brag book for a Daddy.  Can't you picture him having one at his desk with some photos of his little girl? Can't you picture the ladies in the office going gaga over it? Hmmm, do we want the ladies at the office going gaga over the fathers of our little girls?!?!?

I'm playing at four challenges with this card:
Simon Says Stamp - Use SSS product (the Inkadinkado stamp set)
CAS on Sunday - Oh, Baby
ETA: Keep it Simple - #23 Flowers
Moxie Fab World - All that Glitters is Gold

I will forever be a fan of gold embossing powder, even if it's not trending.  I think it's that magical moment when the stuff does its thing and turns from powder into something most non-cardmakers never dreamed you could make at home ;)

As for Miss Ellie (yep, that's her name)... 12 weeks and definitely EVERYBODY'S little girl in our family.

Thanks for visiting today.

Supplies for daddy's little girl:
Paper: CS  Bringmann, PP October Afternoon
Stamps:  Inkadinkado
Ink : Versamark
Tools: scallop die Amuse
Other: gold embossing powder, crochet thread

Maria I want to steal your ADORABLE little fur baby and cuddle her up. She's one of the cutest puppies I have ever seen. What kind of dog is she?

Your card is sooo pretty but I have to say that your little Miss Ellie has stolen the limelight in this post. :)

Yes, yes, it's good that the ladies in the office think of him as a father - off limits! And yes, it would be an adorable Daddy Brag book, just as it is an adorable card! Oh, wait, can I take back the adorable adjectives, coz now it's the ONLY appropriate adjective for Miss Ellie. She is Adorable with cream and sugar!!! Thank you for sharing!!

Eine ganz entzückende Karte.
Gefällt mir richtig gut... und die kleine Hundedame ist ja wirklich herzallerliebst.
Liebe Grüße

Maria, this is my favorite card of yours to date. I adore the perfectly embossed sentiment...and the perfect little chintz pattern paper...and scalloped!!!

I agree with you too embossing is timeless. Trends don't apply.
